Cedar Forest

The cedar forest that lies to the south of Azrou is a unique habitat in Morocco; it has a luxuriant atmosphere and is surrounded by the Middle Atlas range. The cedar forest shelters many troupes of Barbary apes which are one of the wildlife highlights in Morocco. They can usually be found feeding along the forest margins though they are shy animals and any excessive intrusion will send them directly to the very top of the branches of the cedar forest.

It is not clear from the articles if the panther is extinct or not.
the wikipedia artilce (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panther...on_and_habitat) suggest that it is extinct in North Africa.
Any other information about the state of this animal? Any project to try to reintroduce this unique animal to the Atlas mountains?

Further to the existence of Panthera pardus dans l'Atlas (et au Maghreb…)
from: http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/15954/0

In North Africa, a tiny relict population persists in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco (Cuzin 2003), and there was a probable observation on the Morocco-Algerian border in Figuig in 2007 (F. Cuzin pers. comm.), while a population was recently found in the Ahaggar of south-eastern Algeria, a region from which they had not previously been recorded (Busby et al. 2006). Leopard are likely extinct in Egypt, although they may occur in the Eastern Desert (Hunter et al. in press).

According to the following link, it is extinct
