On top of the world to say thank you

On top of the world to say thank you

On a spectacular evening on the final day of November, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company hosted The Cape Leopard Trust and some very special guests to an unforgettable evening of drinks and canapés at the Lookout Deck, an open air function facility at the Lower Cable Station. It was certainly a night to remember.

Over the years we have got to know amazing partners and friends who have supported our work, helping us to protect the Cape’s leopards and incredible biodiversity. Sabine Lehmann and her team at Table Mountain Aerial Cableway have recently become a sponsor of the Urban Caracal project and purchased a radio tracking collar to assist Dr Laurel Serieys, who along with her assistants, SANParks and UCT is monitoring the population and health of the city’s secretive and savvy red cat.

Sabine explained how guests had one morning reported seeing a dog eating a dassie. On closer examination of the pictures it was discovered that a caracal was hunting on the mountain in close vicinity to the cable station. To great excitement this was a clear confirmation caracal are thriving in the area, and thus Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company offered their help with the project

As we watched the sun set into the ocean from atop the mountain on an awesome day, we were able to show our appreciation to those who have shared this journey with us in the best way we know how, with the backdrop of nature at its finest and the twinkling lights of the Mother City, the place we are privileged to call home.
