The Amur Leopard (from the name of the river flowing at the border between Russia and China, or Far Eastern leopard, Panthera pardus orientalis) is quite certainly the rarest and most endangered big cat in the world because of a wild population of only 30 to 35 individuals .
ALTA (the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance) regroups 13 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that decided to fight for the preservation of these animals. Here is a 10-min video presenting the Amur Leopard and the Alliance.
