Amur Leopard

Part of an Endangered Species Art Collection

The Amur Leopard is currently classified as critically endangered. This  leopard is considered to be one of the world’s rarest cats. The population is made up of about 57 individuals mostly found in a small part in the Russian province of Primorsky Krai, along with a few leopards scattered throughout China. The population has risen much since 2007 when it was at a low of 30 individuals, and there are currently 200 leopards in captivity, mostly in European zoos. There are many causes of this animal’s endangerment in the wild their threats consist of, habitat loss, fragmentation, lack of prey, conflict with humans, poaching, and illegal trade. Around 1970-1983 80% of the Amur leopard's territory was lost to deforestation, forest fires, and farming. Like many other endangered animals Amur leopards are a critical part of their environment’s biodiversity and without them many other species would die off.

Sumatran Tiger

Part of an Endangered Species Art Collection

 

         Sumatran tigers are currently considered critically endangered with a predicted population of 400 or less. Over the last 25 years their population has been cut in half. Because of deforestation, growth of agriculture, poaching, and habitat loss, these animals are at high risk for extinction, just like many other tiger species that are already gone. These rare tigers are found on the islands of Sumatra, the only place where tigers, elephants and rhinos coexist. All living organisms contribute to an ecosystem, Sumatran tigers are crucial to the forest’s biodiversity and greatly contribute to keeping their ecosystems health, without them the ecosystem would be destined for failure.

The World Wildlife Foundation helps these tigers by  influencing how the land in Sumatra is being used and conserved. They monitor the tigers habitat to gather data on population sizes and health of the species. WWF has successfully worked with the Indonesian state government to protect tiger habitats from threats.
