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

Book Presentations and Talks

We offer schools, groups and organisations slideshow presentations showing the findings of our research on the elusive and little-known Cape leopards, the role of predators in an ecosystem and the threats to their populations due to humans.  Presentations also include slides of other animals we have photographed using motion-sensor cameras in our research areas.

Many animals of the Western Cape are nocturnal and seldom seen, so it is a great privilege to see photos of animals such as aardvark, aardwolf, African wildcat, cape fox, caracal, and genet.  This is an ideal educational tool for learners of all ages that are presently working through the Natural Science Learning Area in the curriculum or any similar area of study.

For teachers, leaders or organisers who want something specific for a presentation we are happy to adapt what we have and, with our expertise in the field, produce a presentation that will satisfy participants' needs.

Presentations are usually between 45 minutes and an hour, which includes a little time for questions and discussion.  We can bring our own projector and only require an adequate space with a screen/wall for projection. There is no charge to educational institutions; however, we appreciate donations to cover our travel costs.

To book a presentation for your school or organisation, please contact eebookings@capeleopard.org.za.
