Protecting the Amur Leopard
We are helping Dartmoor Zoo as they needed our assistance to build a new facility for critically endangered Amur leopards. They have been accepted into a breeding programme which will help to save this rare species from extinction.
Meddings Fabrication are helping with the enclosure build for FREE as part of our donation to the local zoo!
Their numbers have rapidly declined because of poaching, habitat loss and deforestation. There are also concerns that the small population results in inbreeding and fewer cubs surviving.
Wild Amur leopards are now only found in the border areas between the Russian Far East and North East China, and possibly North Korea. Their range is smaller than 2,500 sq km - that's an area smaller than Dorset!
