The Amur leopard, aka the Far Eastern leopard, is a critically endangered subspecies found in the southwestern Primorye region of Russia. There are only 20-30 Amur leopards left in the wild, according to the latest International Union for Conservation of Nature census. Threats include poaching, habitat destruction and climate change. The mascots for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi include an anthropomorphic Amur leopard, along with a polar bear and a European hare.
