Strategy for Conservation of the Far-Eastern leopard in the Russian Federation

Strategy for Conservation of the Far-Eastern leopard in the Russian Federation

A revised version of the Strategy concentrates on the following priorities:

  • The conservation of a sustainable population of the leopard in the south-western region of the Primorsky Krai.
  • The creation of a sustainable leopard population in the southern region of the Sikhote-Alin Mountains.
  • Increased multilateral leopard conservation efforts between Russia, China and North Korea.
  • A decrease in the degradation of leopard habitats in the southwestern region of the Primorsky Krai and in the southern Sikhote-Alin region. This is to be achieved through an optimization of land-use planning systems and the development of a network of protected areas.
  • The optimization of the use of natural resources and the improvement of ecological sustainability in the field of forest and subsurface resource management throughout the habitat of the Far-Eastern leopard.
  • The improvement of hunting practices and regulations that would, on one hand, increase the leopard prey populations and on the other facilitate the resolution of conflict situations that arise with local inhabitants.
  • The provision of an unavoidable criminal penalty for any activities involving illegal hunting, storage and sale of Far-Eastern leopards and its derivatives.
  • The creation of an efficient monitoring system of the Far-Eastern leopards and its prey.
  • The limitation of research methods to only those that allow for the viability of each individual specimen.
  • It is necessary to achieve every single objective outline in the revised version of the Strategy to assure the long-term conservation of the Far-Eastern leopard.
