Leopard or panther?
These two terms refer to the same species. Although it is true that in french "leopard" is more commonly used to refer to the African feline and "panther" for the Asian subspecies.
The name “Amur panther” is indicative of the
current geographical situation of the species, since today these animals are
only found in the region of the Amur river, partial border between the Russian
Far East and China.
A possible reintroduction?
Like other endangered wild species, the Amur leopard is in a breeding program in European zoos. Because of the critical state of the population of this feline in the wild, a reintroduction program is being considered with cubs which born in zoo.
EcoZonia wishes to take part in this ambitious project by building a reproduction center dedicated to this species.
