Amur Leopard Cub

JMChown

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

The cub is around 7 weeks old and was born at the Wildlife Hertiage Foundation site in Kent. The charity plays an integral part in the worldwide breeding programme for endangered big cats, please visit their website and offer your support www.whf.org.uk
Amur leopards can live 10 – 15 years in the wild (“Leopold” a camera-trap study leopard was recorded as over 13 years old in the wild – a good sign that although there is only a very small population of Amur leopards left in the wild there appears to be little inbreeding depression). They can live up to 20 years in captivity.
Current estimates are 28 – 30 remaining wild Amur leopards. 2007 census counted 14 – 20 adults and 5 – 6 cubs in South-western Primorye, 20 – 21 adults and 4 -5 cubs were counted in 2003, and 13-16 adults and 1 – 3 were counted in the 2000 census.
