The Amur Leopard Programme covers all aspects of this big cats future survival - research, captive breeding, veterinary work, habitat protection and prevention of poaching. Although the Amur leopard is so rare with only 35 individuals left in the wild - they are almost totally unknown outside of their native area in the Russian Far East. We are working not only to mobilise all the necessary scientific and conservation action required to save them but also to educate the public and politicians alike. GOAL - to create a sustainable and healthy population of Amur leopards in the Russian Far East PROJECT COSTS - finance is needed for the following; Veterinary work and training of local vets - £15,000 Veterinary laboratories - set up and maintenance - £15,000 Anti-poaching teams - £20,000 Habitat protection and Firefighting - £20,000 Research and field monitoring - £20,000 Education and workign with local people - £10,000
