AmurLeopard

There are less than 50 Amur (or Siberian) Leopards living in the wild. The area in the southern part of Siberia has had numerous forest fires nearly wiping out the entire population.

WWF is currently supporting a release of zoo bred animals to promote a stabile population. Hope is that the wild living animals will mate with the released.

The entire profit from the drawing of the Amur Leopard will be donated to this project.

“Adult gorillas will fight to the death defending their families. This is why poachers who may be seeking only one infant for the zoo trade must often kill all the adults in the family to capture the baby.”
― Sy Montgomery, Walking with the Great Apes: Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, Birute Galdikas
