|Why Are They Endangered?
Amur leopards have highly valued pelts. They can fetch a price up to $1,000 per pelt. This why the leopards are being poached. The leopard's habitat is also shrinking rapidly. This is due to logging businesses cutting down trees in the forests they live in. The poaching of Roe and Silka Deer is also causing the Amur Leopard's food sources to decrease.
