Go well Quinton, and thank you

The Cape Leopard Trust bids a fond farewell to our CEO, Dr Quinton Martins, co-founder of the Cape Leopard Trust. Quinton officially left the organisation at the end of September to plan for his relocation to the USA where he has been offered an incredible opportunity to join the Snow Leopard Conservancy based in California.   This is an awesome new adventure for Quinton, contributing towards his vision and desire to establish an international network connecting mountain cat conservation across the globe.

The Trustees and staff would like to acknowledge Quinton's contribution, which has made The Cape Leopard Trust what it is today, with a focused and committed team to take the organisation forward. We are pleased to say he will be staying on as a Trustee and non-executive director of the Trust.  Considering he started out 10 years ago with the bare minimum of equipment and funding, his remarkable achievement is leaving behind a great legacy.  

We wish Quinton, his wife Elizabeth and their daughter Ayla, all the best on the next step of their life journey. We will miss them.
