North-Chinese Leopard

North-Chinese Leopard

Scientific name: Panthera pardus japonensis

It is estimated that there are about 2500 North Chinese Leopards left in the wild.

Historic records from before 1930 indicate that North-Chinese leopards lived near Beijing and in the mountains to the north-west. They possibly ranged up to the southern Ussuri region.[3] Today, only small and isolated populations remain.

About 100 North-Chinese leopards are kept in zoos worldwide, with the vast majority in Europe.
