Green Living Project - Video interview

Published: 24 June 2009

An apex predator in the rugged Western Cape region of South Africa, the little researched and undeservedly vilified Cape leopard is an “umbrella species” whose conservation effectively helps to preserve smaller, lower profile predators.

Long believed to be a robustly populated species that routinely preyed upon local livestock, Cape Leopard Trust’s research revealed that this wide ranging species was routinely removed with little or no consideration to the impact on its ecosystem.

Cape Leopard Trust is championing the cause of predator preservation – a lean yet dynamic, impactful organization that has implemented conservation strategies, research projects and tourism initiatives including environmental education program.
