Amur tiger and leopard are two globally endangered species. They are facing threats of habitat loss and degradation, as well as poaching. Amur tiger and leopard are also the flagships of the forest system in Russian Far East and northeast China. Since 2006, WWF has been carrying out the conservation programme for Amur tiger and leopard in Northeast China together with partnerships. The restoration of their populations and habitats is the goal of the programme. The conservation measures we take include habitat rehabilitation, anti-poaching, population monitoring, mitigating the conflict between human and wildlife, international cooperation, etc. Through long and unremitting efforts, the populations of both Amur tiger and leopard in China have been raising up from the bottom. Now the programme is based in Changchun, Jilin province. The Working area spans the habitats of Amur tiger and leopard in both Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces.
