We got the materials, which recorded two leopards together. In one case, a "wedding" of leopards and the other - the female with the grown cub in the process of education. The main surprise was the results, which showed an increase in the number of the study area by 50%. It is particularly important to note that among the groups accounted leopard is present at least four breeding females, of course, it does not mean the increase in the total population of leopard in general, but it suggests that there is a tendency to its growth, which we hope will be confirmed during the counts in all habitat leopard next winter.

The fact that for two years, none of leopards, we have taken into account in southern site, has not disappeared - it is conclusively proves that the idea that the fragmented protected areas of different levels into a single large, powerful and prosperous national park was the only true! ” It remains only to complete its implementation.
