Why you chose endangered organism: because I wouldn’t think that such a fierce predator such as a leopard would become extinct What ecological role does it play in the environment: important economically, ecologically and culturally to the surrounding areas, also preys on deer Why you want to save it from extinction: because there are only 30 Leopards left, and because of it’s overall significance to the society surrounding itCurrent preservation efforts: WWF monitors it’s population and habitat, camera traps for observing, increasing areas of protected land, reducing illegal logging, Idea of possible solutions: place the leopards in a special environment where poachers can’t approach the Leopards
