Another photo of the wonderful Ursula, and Amur leopard at Jungle Cat World Zoo, hiding in her shadowy enclosure.

There are only approximately 30-40 of these cats left in wild, fighting for survival in a tiny section of land in the Russian Far East; some of this land is shared with the Amur tiger. The threats that face these cats include poaching, habitat loss, reduction of prey and inbreeding depression. The future of Ursula’s kin remains in serious doubt.

The only way the Amur leopard will ever be safe if it is protected from poaching and the illegal wildlife trade. What is needed most is enforcement on the ground - supporting front line rangers - and capacity-building for law enforcement investigators to investigate and arrest high-level trafficking kingpins. FREELAND Foundation is helping do just that. Visit FREELAND.org for more information.

You know...some friends of mine (snow leopard keepers) tried to "convert me" to snow leopards. It didn't work, but those fluffy cats edged RIGHT up there. Amur leopards have a special place too.
