San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance Celebrates Birth of Two Rare Amur Leopards

The Cubs, Born at the San Diego Zoo, Increase Population of the World’s Most Endangered Big Cat Species

SAN DIEGO (March 28, 2023) — A birth of twins is exceptional, no matter the species. However, when those twins are Amur leopards—and fewer than 300 of those big cats are estimated to exist on Earth—the births are especially significant. This week, wildlife care staff at the San Diego Zoo announced the birth of two Amur leopard cubs, increasing this rare cat’s estimated worldwide population by two and furthering the nonprofit conservation organization’s ongoing work to save this vital Asian species.
