PHOTOS/VIDEOS: Hero mother Bary boosts population of rarest cats in world with 2 healthy cubs

In recent years, the Siberian - or Amur - leopard almost died out: in 2007 there were as few as 30 in the wild.

Recent estimates suggest a figure of 80 of these big cats in the Russian Far East as they edge their way back.

These cubs, caught by a wildlife camera, are the first proof that leopardess Bary - aged 4 - has given birth in the Land of the Leopard National Park, set up by the Russian government to ensure the survival of the most threatened cat species on the planet.
