What is the rarest big cat in the world?

The world’s rarest big cat is the Amur, or Manchurian, leopard (Latin Name: Panthera pardus orientalis), of which only 65–69 individuals are estimated to exist, according to the most recent census data from 2015.

The rare numbers of the Amur can be attributed to poaching as it is killed for its beautiful spotted fur. Its prey species like deer and hare are also hunted by humans making its survival a doubtful prospect.
