The world’s rarest big cats have nearly doubled in population over the past decade. According to a census released last week by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), there are now at least 57 Amur leopards in Russia compared to only 30 in 2007, Scientific American reported. The WWF credited the establishment of the long-delayed national park in 2012 that banned pretty much all human activity within 12,000 hectares of prime leopard habitat.
