Artist's Description

Amur Leopard residing at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon.
Nikon D300 – 18-200mm lens

The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis), also known as the Manchurian leopard, is a wild feline predator native to Korea, Northeast China and the Russian Far East. This leopard subspecies is home to the mountainous areas of the taiga as well as other temperate forests. It is one of the rarest felids in the world with an estimated 30 to 45 individuals remaining in the wild. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has deemed the Amur leopard critically endangered, meaning that it is considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.
The amur is threatened by poaching, deforestation and inbreeding (which produces loss of genetic diversity).
