Back in 2007 conservationists counted how many Amur leopards—a species traditionally found in China and Russia—were left in the wild, they found 30. Extinction seemed imminent, but a recent re-counting of the Amur leopard population found that the species is bouncing back. Researchers counted 57 Amur leopards in Russia, and another 12 in China. Educating the public about the leopard’s impending doom, a well as large conservation parks that allow the leopard to thrive were the two main factors contributing to the leopard’s recovery.
