Critically Endangered - Amur Leopard
This Amur Leopard is such an incredible creature; as soon as I photographed him I just knew I had to draw him. The Amur Leopard's habitats are in Northeast Asia, but the leopards are on the brink of extinction. It is estimated that there are only about 60 left in the wild! The sad thing is these gorgeous animals are hunted for their beautiful spotted fur. That beautiful spotted fur is what inspired me to create this piece. I hope that this painting will help to bring attention to the very sad state this species is in.
