Persian Leopard reintroduction program

Attica Zoological Park actively participates in a major program of global importance developed by WWF Russia and the Russian Academy of Sciences in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources in Russia, the European Endangered Species Program of EAZA (EEP) of this species, Sochi Natural Park and other key partners.

 

The aim of this program is the breeding of this species in a controlled environment and the gradual reintroduction of their offspring in the Northern Caucasus, where today there are less than 10 individuals left in the wild, risking complete mass extinction of the species.

 

Together with Parc de Felins in France, the Attica Zoological Park will act as a key center for the safe and successful breeding of Persian Leopards, by hosting a breeding pair in a specially designed enclosure.
