    Vets were hand-feeding the tiny Amur leopard baby at the Yalta Zoo, as the cub is still too young to open its eyes or even walk on four legs. Only 57 Amur leopards, which are listed as "Critically Endangered," are believed to live in the wild as of 2015.

  • Newborn Amur Tiger Triplets Give Hope to Most Endangered Tiger Species

    Three newly-born Amur tiger cub triplets were seen playing with their parents at their new home in Belogorsk’s Taigan Safari Park on Monday, after the sanctuary welcomed the cuddly cats into this world last week. The newborn triplets represent a major boost to the population as there are only about 500 Amur tigers left in the wild, mostly in Russia's Far East provinces. Amur tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula, but were driven to the brink of extinction by the 1940s as a result of hunting. However, Russia granted the tiger full protection soon afterwards and numbers have risen.
