National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative has been able to support pilot programs that effectively combat the poaching, poisoning, pesticides, and habitat loss that are eradicating big cats.

A grizzly bear, three leopards and two monkeys are adjusting to their new homes at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. The six surviving animals are being held in an isolated area, away from the public. It is unclear whether they will ever be placed on public display. “Right now, they just need a period of quiet,” Doug Warmolts (director of animal care at the zoo) said.
Amur leopard captured on camera in China for first time since 1949 An Amur leopard was photographed in a forest in Wangqing county, on the border of Russia and North Korea. There are fewer than 50 Amur leopards (Panthera pardus orientalis) left living in the wild, almost all of them in Russia. The cat is classified as technically extinct in China.
Chinese officials have immediately moved to establish a national nature reserve around the Wangqing forest, in order to protect the area.
