These endangered leopards are disappearing from Cambodia

The Indochinese leopard is dangerously close to becoming extinct in Cambodia, according to wild cat conservationists, who spent more than a decade looking for the creatures and found just 35.

According to a report from Panthera, a global wild cat conservation organization, researchers set up hundreds of cameras in two protected areas in Cambodia’s Eastern Plains Landscape between 2009 and 2019.

During that period, they only spotted 35 adult Indochinese leopards, and when they returned in 2021, not a single leopard could be seen.
