Cleaning off snow from our red panda exhibit in the middle of the #snowpocalypse. Even the toughest jobs can be fun when you work with great people! #eriepa #eriezoo #eriewinter #erieweather #snowpocalypse2017 #snowmageddon2017 #zookeeper #zookeeperlife #zoo #yeti #cantfeelmyface

Mother nature drops 54 inches of ❄️ in 30 hours, Erie declares a state of emergency, we brave horrible roads to make it in, dig out gates, doors, and pathways to make sure our critters are OK, and do it all while having a little fun. Even the toughest days can be the best days if you're lucky enough to work with the right people. Love being a part of this team ❤❤❤😊😊😊. #eriepa #eriezoo #zookeeper #zookeeperlife #winter #winterstorm #dedication #54in30 #teamwork

Amur Leopard⠀
.⠀
You are looking at one of the rarest animals on the planet. The Amur Leopard, with less the 70 individuals left in the wild, is teetering on brink of extinction. Poaching, habitat destruction and climate change are all factors leading to the Amur Leopard’s decline. ⠀
.⠀
Previous population and distribution⠀
The distribution of the Amur leopard has been reduced to a fraction of its original range. It once extended throughout northeastern ("Manchurian") China, including Jilin and Heilongjiang Provinces, and throughout the Korean Peninsula. The species range in Russia was dramatically reduced during the seventies, losing about 80% of its former range.⠀
.⠀
Current population and distribution⠀
Today, the Amur leopard inhabits about 5,000 km². The last remaining viable wild population, estimated at 57 individuals, is found in a small area in the Russian Province of Primorsky Krai, between Vladivostok and the Chinese border. In adjacent China, 7-12 scattered individuals are estimated to remain. In South Korea, the last record of an Amur leopard dates back to 1969, when a leopard was captured on the slopes of Odo Mountain, in South Kyongsang Province.⠀
.⠀
Habitat loss and fragmentation⠀
It is estimated that between 1970-1983, the Amur leopard lost an astonishing 80% of its former territory. Indiscriminate logging, forest fires and land conversion for farming are the main causes. Still, all is not lost. Even now large tracts of forest, which are ideal leopard habitat exist. If these areas can be protected from unsustainable logging, rampant forest fires and poaching of wildlife, the chance exists to increase the population of the subspecies in the wild.⠀

Bornean Orangutan⠀
.⠀
The orangutan, with its distinctive red-orange hair, is the only ape that inhabits Asia. Weighing up to 90 kg (200 lb.), the Bornean orangutan is about 1-1.5 m tall (3.5-4.5 ft.) with an arm span as long as 2.5 m (8 ft.). Boasting a Malay name meaning “People of the Forest,” orangutans share 97% of the same DNA as humans. Not surprisingly, they possess great intelligence as well as other human-like qualities. For example, Bornean orangutans use tools in daily activities. They employ branches to test water depth or poke termite holes, and they utilize leaves as umbrellas, sponges, or napkins.⠀
.⠀
Conservation Status⠀
In prehistoric times, orangutans inhabited forests as far north as China. Now, due to deforestation and poaching, Bornean orangutans have been restricted to the island of Borneo with their population reduced to 50,000-60,000. They are currently classified on the IUCN Red List as an endangered species.⠀
Many of the issues surrounding orangutan depopulation stem from the impoverished state of Indonesia. Facing poverty and starvation, many Indonesians have turned to eating orangutan meat, illegal logging, capturing babies for the pet trade, and using slash and burn techniques to turn portions of the rainforest into palm oil plantations. Slashing and burning have resulted not only in a reduction of fruit trees and habitat for orangutans, it has also exacerbated natural forest fires, causing widespread destruction.⠀
.⠀
What You Can Do to Help⠀
Aside from donating to the many orangutan charities around the world, there are many other things you can do to help save the orangutan on a day-to-day basis. For starters, avoid purchasing tropical or exotic plywood and hardwood, palm oil-based products, and rayon viscose clothing. In addition, reduce your consumption of paper, and seek out recycled “treeless” paper sources.⠀
