Amur leopard protection project
MetadataShow full item record
In order to protect the last remaining Amur leopards, the Tigris Foundation has developed a compensation project to prevent retaliation from farmers when their livestock are killed. This is done in conjunction with other programs including anti-poaching, education, land-use planning, forest fire-fighting, and habitat monitoring. Compensation from tiger and leopard kills varies from financial compensation for individual animals, financial compensation due to the presence of tigers and leopards, or practical assistance. Since 1999, a total of $5668 was paid in compensation in Khasan.
