Amur Leopard cub (Panthera pardus orientalis - one of two born at the Wildlife Heritage foundation, These babies are very precious due to the precarious position of this species in the wild. It was an honour to be able to photograph them.

IUCN's 2000 Red List of Threatened Species classifies the subspecies as Critically Endangered, and the CITES has listed it on Appendix I.

The last remaining viable wild population, estimated 20-25 individuals, is found in a small area in the Russian Province of Primorsky Krai, between Vladivostok and the Chinese border.

In adjacent China, 7-12 scattered individuals are estimated to remain. In South Korea, the last record of an Amur leopard dates back to 1969, when a leopard was captured on the slopes of Odo Mountain, in South Kyongsang Province

You've managed a fine capture of this little chap walking around Val - just love all the detail in his fur and whiskers. Your description makes sobering reading - let's hope these survive and rear cubs of their own.
