Hopes raised for critically endangered Amur leopard

RZSS Highland Wildlife Park is home to the world’s only purpose-built Amur leopard habitat.

Hopes that Amur leopards could be reintroduced to Russia in the future have been raised after the birth of a cub at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park.
RZSS Highland Wildlife Park is home to the world’s only purpose-built Amur leopard habitat which is not on show to the public. It has been designed solely to breed Amur leopards and maximise their potential of being released into the wild.
Head of living collections Douglas Richardson hailed the birth as ‘incredibly exciting’, adding that it shows the vital role conservation breeding programmes have in protecting threatened species.
