The Cape Leopard Trust - Using research as a tool for conservation & finding solutions to human-wildlife conflict

Video Material

Opulent Living is proud to announce that the recent Cape Leopard Trust fundraising luncheon and auction curated and executed by Opulent Living Experiences was a major success! The fabulous and fun-filled day raised an outstanding R592,000! All the proceeds of the auctions will go towards The Cape Leopard Trust.
Kwêla presenter, André Weideman, visits the Cape Leopard Trust’s Boland research team in the Du Toitskloof mountains. Here he learns more about how they conduct their research – from collecting leopard droppings to camera trapping and leopard tracking with telemetry equipment. André also learns about the Environmental Education project and how the SA Mint supports this aspect of the Trust’s work through the donation of a percentage of the sales from their new Leopard Coin, the first set in the Nocturnal Hunters collection of the Natura series.
The Cape Leopard is half the size of others in South Africa and very little is known about them. We put a camera in the Cedarberg to capture one. www.pasella.com
