It is twilight in the Russian Far East, stars slowly twinkle into existence above in the navy blanket that is the sky. Deep in the forests, the temperature drops steeply as total night approaches and a gentle snow begins to fall on the steadily darkening land. A small herd of Sika deer emerge from the trees; they are on their migration trek towards warmer lands. The herd freezes, alert. There is a predator watching.
Several yards away, a spotted feline lies hidden. This feline is an Amur Leopard.
There are less than 40 left in the wild.
