Leopard Habitat Worldwide
few hundred years
ago, leopard habitat used to stretch across the entire globe
but that was before man
disturbed the balance of nature and caused the decline of what was once the
most widely distributed feline apart from the domestic cat.
Regal Leopard At Rest
In Africa there is
still a healthy population of these beautiful cats south of
the Sahara due to the fact that there are still plenty of areas that their
adaptive capabilities allows them to survive in as well as a relatively large
number of national parks and game reserves where they are conserved.
But it's outside of
Africa where the decline has been shocking and most of the leopard
populations in the rest of the world apart from India are critically
Leopard Habitat and
Anatolian, Indo-Chinese, Iran, Java, North China and Sinai
leopards are all critically endangered with populations declining in
only way for these populations to increase and become stable is
through the long term protection and conservation of leopard habitat
in these areas.
Even this master of adaptability which can go undetected living
close to human settlements because of its stealth and camouflage is
no match for poachers and habitat destruction in the long run.
