The project is focused not only on Amur tiger and leopard conservation, but it will also protect other wildlife, such as the Asiatic black bear, brown bear and ungulate species which are dwelling in LLNP. By conducting regular anti-poaching patrols, rangers will ensure protection of natural habitat that is home to as many as 1,300 plants, including 68 species listed in the Red Data Books of Russia, 329 vertebrates, 32 fish species, 12 reptiles, 65 mammals and 220 bird species. The LLNP serves as an ecological corridor connecting wildlife from Southwest Primorye to neighbouring protected areas in China.

The aim of the project is to conserve biodiversity through intensive anti-poaching activities. The objectives of the project are:

  • To improve anti-poaching efforts by launching a pilot project in ‘Land of the Leopard National Park’;
  • To protect Amur leopards, tigers and other wildlife from poachers and forest fires.
