PANTHERA PARDUS ORIENTALIS

Classed as a critically endangered animal by the WWF, with only 70 left in the wild, the Amur Leopard is found in the far-east of Russia and north-east China, in an area smaller than Dorset. Not only are they at risk from climate change, they are also sadly hunted for their beautiful fur coats as well as their bones, used in traditional medicines in Asia.
