How to join planting 1 000 000 Korean pine seedlings in the Land of Leopard
Young trees will be planted in the southwest of Primorye, where the remaining 40 Amur leopards roam.
Only coniferous and broadleaved forests can provide enough prey and safe shelter for leopards. Unfortunately, under the influence of annual forest fires and logging operations forests degrade turning into poor secondary oak stands and further into treeless wastelands. In order to stop this process, three years ago WWF launched the project for coniferous and broadleaved forests restoration in the Land of Leopard. This year Citybank provided funds for purchasing 1 000 000 Korean pine seedlings which will be planted in the forest areas in Khasansky and Ussuriisky districts of Primorsky province.
The campaign «Plant a forest for Leopards» will become the largest action on restoration of forest habitat of the rarest cat of the planet.
