Endangered species are facing a new threat.

Add your name to help conservation efforts to continue after Brexit.

Twycross Zoo in Leicester is due to export its critically-endangered Amur leopard for conservation. But the forms they used before the UK left the EU’s single market no longer exist. 

The zoo has run a world-leading leopard conservation project for 20 years. Samara, the zoo’s female Amur leopard, has already given birth to two healthy litters. She was meant to travel to Belgium to produce another, before Brexit got in the way.

But conservation zoos like Twycross are now facing insurmountable trading cost and complexity. Neil Dorman, curator at Twycross, said: "The paperwork that existed before Brexit has literally just vanished so all of those permits now need to be rewritten".

There are less than 100 Amur leopards left in the wild. Conservation programmes are a vital safety net to save critically endangered species from total extinction.  

There were 155 in endangered animal relocations from the UK in January 2020. Since the UK left the EU single market, there has not been a single one.

Global efforts to save a critically endangered species like the Amur leopards have been halted by post-Brexit trading chaos. The UK should work with the world to conserve our planet’s endangered species.
