Leopard Conservation Status
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), leopards are considered “vulnerable” but not “endangered.” Their population is on the decline. Significantly, there are not enough mature adults mating in the wild to counter all of the hunting and habitat loss that they face. Humans are the single biggest threat to African leopards. In addition to being hunted as trophies, their furs, skulls, bones, claws, tails and internal organs are used in a variety of medicines and cosmetics. Some African nations and lobbyists are trying make these trades illegal. Nonethelss, there is still a thriving market for them.
Another major threat to leopard populations in Africa is loss of habitat. This is due to human encroachment on wildlife areas. Their territory is becoming increasingly thinned out as more and more people move onto land. This land was once their prime breeding and hunting ground. Concurrently, it has resulted in a significant decline in leopard numbers.
