Earlier this month, years of collaboration and partnership between the Animal Demography Unit and The Cape Leopard Trust culminated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding. Its purpose is focused on building significant positive impact for various predator species and to harness the strengths of both organisations in conservation, research, policy influence and critically important, the mobilization of citizen scientists and volunteers with a passion for the environment.
Both organisations recognize that partnerships and close collaboration is the way to lead in conservation, as dwindling resources and the growing challenges facing our predators, need new and innovative ways to ensure their survival into the future. The two organisations are now working towards identifying key projects and priority areas for joint action.
This momentous occasion took place at Africa’s greenest hotel, Hotel Verde, next to Cape Town International Airport.
