Not less than 50 leopards can live here in security. The distribution of the Far Eastern Leopards decreased dramatically over the past two decades, but population of this species reached its critically low level and estimates 30 individuals in the southwest of the Primorsky Region. «Land of the Leopard» national park covers about 60% of the natural habitat of the most endangered subspecies of the large cat, preservation of which is the Park′s major purpose.
The National Park occupies 262 thousands hectares and is located in the Khasansky, Nadezdinsky, Ussuriysky districts as well as in the small area of Frunzenskiy district in Vladivostok. The reserve «Kedrovaya Pad», preserve «Leopardovy», and number of other territories with total area exceeding 280 thousands hectares are included as compounds of the National Park. The National Park′s protective zone with area of more than 80 thousands hectares was affirmed later.
The «Land of Leopard» is divided into several zones, the smallest of which (23 thousands of hectares) is the conservation zone that you can’t visit without special admission.
The other zones have a simplified visiting regime. Thus, conducting excursions is allowed in the «specially protected» zone. The recreational zone (79, 5 thousands hectares) provides more vigorous touristic activity. The «Leopard Trail» is the first tourist route, developed in the National Park. The administrative zone (almost 77 thousands hectares) takes into consideration the interests of people, living in the territory of the National Park.
