NEWSLINK: Wild Amur leopard tasked with becoming hero father to help save the species

Siberian leopards are one of the world's most endangered species with only 80 alive in the wild and another 200 in captivity. Leo80M's role is to boost the numbers.

The leopard is becoming the first in 60 years to be moved from the wild to a zoo. He is not going on show to the public but at Moscow Zoo he will entertain females from around the world, also part of a breeding programme that could be the difference between survival and extinction for these rare animals.
