The Amur leopard, which is critically endangered, with an estimated 19 to 26 surviving leopards in the wild in southeastern Russia and northeastern China in 2017, is slowly making a comeback. In 2012, the Land of the Leopard National Park was established in Primorsky Krai, Russia, to prevent the species’ extinction. Since the park’s establishment, the number of leopards is estimated to have risen to as many as 120. The park also contains habitats for Siberian tigers. China launched its own effort for a national park to protect leopards and tigers in 2017. (provided by the Land of the Leopard National Park)
