Ford Wildlife Foundation supports The Cape Leopard Trust
Published: 26 October 2020

The Ford Wildlife Foundation (FWF) supports environmental education, research and conservation projects around Sub Saharan Africa, including projects by the Endangered Wildlife Trust, WWF SA, Birdlife SA and WESSA. 

The Cape Leopard Trust became part of the FWF family of projects in September 2016 with the sponsorship of a Ford Ranger supporting our work in the Cederberg. The first vehicle to join us, affectionately dubbed ‘Harrison Ford’, was later purchased by the CLT and has become a permanent valued member of our fleet. We feel honoured that FWF has chosen to renew its partnership with the CLT until 2021 and in 2019 we welcomed a second Ford Ranger to help us get out into the wild. ‘Lone Ranger’ joins Harrison Ford and can be seen supporting our Cederberg and Piketberg projects, as well as occasionally helping out with delivering the Environmental Education programme. 

Over the last four years, we’ve taken Ford on some incredible journeys across the mountainous landscapes we having the privilege of working in, and we are thrilled to have these capable and reliable vehicles at our disposal to fulfil the FWF mantra: ‘Enabling us to go further and make a real impact in the communities where we operate’.

Ford Wildlife Foundation ~ “The conservation and preservation of the environment has become a major worldwide issue, dramatically changing the attitudes of consumers and the way large corporations do business. To this end, the Ford Wildlife Foundation was established in September 2014, funded by the Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa and supported by its nationwide network of Ford Dealers.”
