Baby Amur Leopard Cub, World's Rarest Big Cat, Born at Yalta Zoo

Description

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. Despite the fact that Amur leopard numbers have roughly doubled since 2007, they are still the species of large felines most vulnerable to extinction.

  • Snow Leopard Taken Off Endangered Species List

    On Friday it was revealed that the snow leopard has officially been downgraded from “endangered” to “vulnerable," by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. In an announcement, the IUCN said, "It is essential to continue and expand conservation efforts to reverse its declining trend and prevent this iconic cat from moving even closer to extinction." However, the organization adds that the snow leopard is still in danger as they continue to face habitat loss, diminishing prey, competition with livestock, persecution, and poaching. Recent estimates place the global snow leopard population around 4,000—on the lower end of the IUCN's scale between endangered and vulnerable.
