MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. The population of the endangered Amur leopard has grown from 40 to 60-70 cats, Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergey Donskoi said on Wednesday.
"The population of this rare feline is out of crisis," the minister said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin, who gives special attention to the preservation of endangered species.
Donskoi said the population of the Amur tiger had also grown from some 400 cats in 2005 to 510 due to the fight against poaching and the development of protected territories.
