Despite the challenges faced by Amur leopards across their range, things are far from hopeless. The small but mighty wild population in Primorsky Krai has remained mostly stable over the past 30 years, in spite of significant human pressures. Anti-poaching efforts and educational programs appear to be working. China has established a reserve that connects with leopard (and tiger) habitat in Russia. There is a possibility of establishing a second wild population by re-introducing zoo-bred Amur leopards in Russia’s Far East.
