WCS Congo


The leopard's versatility means that it has managed to survive persecution and the disappearance of large areas of its habitat. They are hunted in parts of their range for their valuable pelts, and are sometimes poisoned or shot in areas where they are considered a threat to livestock. However, the leopard's adaptability and extensive distribution means that it is unlikely to become extinct in the near future, and so it is classified as 'Lower Risk' by IUCN. It is integrally protected in Congo.
