With a total wild population of less than 40 individuals, the Amur leopard is possibly the most endangered big cat on Earth. Along with the Amur tiger they can only be found in the Russian Far East and northern China.
The Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance (ALTA) is formed of 15 international and Russian NGOs all working to support conservation of Amur leopards and tigers in the wild. ALTA channels money raised by the international zoo community, public and corporate sponsors to four implementing agencies working to save these magnificent and threatened animals.
