Sintesi dell'editore

In 2007 only 30 Amur leopards remained in the wild. Scientists knew they needed to do more to help these big cats. However, details of the leopards' wild lives in their high-altitude forest home were still a mystery. With the help of new technology and the cooperation of scientists and governments around the world, people have learned more than ever before about these rare cats. An innovative plan is under way to give Amur leopards a more secure future. Can these cats rebound from the brink before it's too late?

"Libraries will definitely want to add this title for all of their animal-loving patrons, especially those with an interest in conservation efforts." (School Library Journal)

"Similar in approach to Markle's The Great Monkey Rescue (2015), this handsome volume looks at efforts to rescue the Amur leopard. Called 'the rarest big cats on Earth', these leopards live in the Asian taiga, west of Vladivostok. Their numbers have dwindled from around 2,400 in the wild during the 1950s to about 30 in 2007 and 50 today, because of disease, poaching, and significant loss of habitat when land was cleared for farming, logging, and mining. The discussion includes several practical, international efforts during the past 16 years to protect the Amur leopard, as well as an innovative plan for the future. Based on interviews with zoologists working in this field, the well-organized, cogently written text is enhanced by the many excellent photos, from shots of drones and firefighters protecting Russia's Land of the Leopard National Park (created in 2012) to close-ups of a leopard hunting and two cubs at play. An informative presentation showing what is being done to save this beautiful but critically endangered species." (Booklist)

"Excellent writing and documentation distinguish Markle's latest." (Kirkus Reviews, starred)
