The Amur leopard or the Far Eastern leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is a subspecies of leopard native to southeastern Russia and northeastern China.
It has been classified as Critically Endangered since 1996. Only 14–20 adults and 5–6 cubs were counted in a census in 2007, with a total of 19–26 Amur leopards in the wild. Results from a new survey indicate that the population may have risen to as many as 50 individuals, representing about a 50% increase from the last survey conducted in 2007.
