Transcript of Amur Leopard
The Amur Leopard is highly endangered with only 35 left in the wild. Their endangerment was caused by habitat loss, poaching, and prey being taken by humans for farming. Because this creature is so endangered it is at risk from total extinction from abiotic factors such as disease and inbreeding.
The species of Amur Leopard is known to only preside in the snowy mountains of southeastern Russia and Jilin Province of northeast China. Average January temperatures range from -20 to -14°C. Rainfall averages at 350 to 1000 mm in Jilin. The Leopards region is known for its short warm summers and long cold winters. The Leopard's Biome is considered a temperate forest, it's major habitat is considered Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed Forests, and its ecological regions are Russian Far East Temperate Forests. The leopard is very adaptable and can live in grasslands or mountains as long as there is sufficient food and water.
The Amur Leopard's niche in the wild is to keep population control on its prey. This includes roe deer and sika deers, small wild boars, along with hares, badgers and raccoon dogs.
How can we stop it?
Humans can stop endangering the Leopard by not deforesting their land for human's use, stop poaching the creature, and stop using so much of their prey (deer) for farming and food.
prey being taken by humans for food
Many humans start farms of deer and kill deer in the Leopard's habitat causing the animal to starve. Then the Leopards ultimately go onto the farms for food and are killed to protect the farmer's livelihood.
Poaching has become a major issue in conservation of wildlife in today's culture. Poachers usually do this to this Leopard in order to sell its expensive 500-1000$ pelt which is sometimes used in fur clothing.
Another major cause of the Amur Leopard's near extinction is habitat loss due to deforestation. This is caused by logging businesses that come into the Leopard's land and cut down their trees on which they climb on and even put their unfinished food on for storage.
