New Leopard In Gouritz Area

We have finally captured a decent photograph of the Matjiesvlei leopard. Although this magnificent male has been caught on film before, it has always been a poor photo or a pic of just a leg, or tail. This has been going on for over a year – now, we have a photograph we can use to create a proper identikit for him. Matjiesvlei, near Calitzdorp, is an awesome area and it has been a privilege for us to work here. Being part of the CLT Gouritz project area, we will begin with the collaring and GPS monitoring of the leopards in this region in May.

We would like to thank all project sponsors for their patience and understanding - allowing us time to get to know you.

We will keep everyone up to date with the collaring project. Fingers crossed!

Best wishes
