Two new researchers join The Cape Leopard Trust

The Cape Leopard Trust has recently welcomed two new members on board. Jeannie Hayward and Anita Meyer will be the two researchers heading up the new CLT project – a leopard population study in the Boland Mountains. Their study area will include the entire Boland Mountain chain, stretching from the Groot Winterhoek Mountains in the north, all the way down to Kogelberg in the south. 

They’ll be using infra-red camera traps in order to survey the leopards and other mammals of this vast region. This will be done in collaboration with Cape Nature, the Animal Demography Unit (ADU) of the University of Cape Town, the City of Cape Town as well as private landowners in the area. Public participation and awareness will be an important part of their study, so watch this space for exciting opportunities!

Anita (MSc Zoology, US) has a passion for nature and a heart for conservation.

Growing up in the Karoo, Jeannie has always had an intense love for the veld and nature.


Accommodation for leopards: Dear CLT supporters

Anita & Jeannie are searching for a base from where to base themselves. If anybody knows of suitable, reasonable cost accommodation they can share in the Stellenbosch/Paarl region(or outlying regions central enough to work from), please contact them on boland@capeleopard.org.za.
