Zane stays at Edinburgh Zoo for the moment,a special enclosure is being built at the Highland Wildlife Park.
‘Amur leopards (Panthera pardus orientalis) are one of the most endangered cats in the world. Her name is Zane and she was born in April 2007.
This dramatic decline is mainly due to poaching of both leopards and their prey animals, habitat destruction due to human activity, and inbreeding.
The range of this species used to cover areas of China, Russia, and the Korean peninsula. However, their numbers have shrunk dramatically, and this cat is no longer found in China or Korea. In Russia as few as 14-20 adults were estimated to survive in 2007.’
Today there are only 25 left in the wild……Critically Endangered!!!!
