The Amur Leopard, a rare leopard found in Russia, is on the verge of extinction!
With only a few left remaining in the wild due to logging, farming, building and poaching- this beautiful species is on a harsh road to extinction if there is not any action done immediately.
The World Wildlife Fund has announced at a news briefing recently that there are only 25-34 of these graceful creatures still living in the wild; a major decline since the beginning of the 20th century when there had been several thousand Amur leopards.
There is some good news. The Amur Leopard can make a comeback if there is immediate action done to save them.
Please, don't let these gorgeous creatures dissappear! Something must be done!
