How to Support and be Involved

The mountains of the Boland are almost completely surrounded by towns, which puts the Cape Leopard Trust Boland Project right on the doorstep of hundreds of thousands of people. This gives us an ideal opportunity to create awareness about the amazing natural wealth these mountains harbour, while increasing exposure and support for our research. The support and involvement of the conservation sector, private landowners and the broader public are integral to the success of the project.

Financial support & sponsorships

The Cape Leopard Trust is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and we rely on sponsorships, private funding and research grants to carry out our research. Any donations of any amount, no matter how small, are very welcome and much needed.

Share observations of leopard activity

Reports of leopard sightings and observations of leopard tracks, scats and scratch marks are very valuable sources of information. We use it to identify suitable sites for camera traps and monitor leopard presence, and we call on everyone please to share this info with us. Where available, a GPS coordinate of the locality is extremely useful, along with size references on photographs of spoor or scat. Send info to: [email protected]

Spread support and awareness for the work of the Cape Leopard Trust

The Cape Leopard Trust Boland Project has become a flagship research and conservation project in the Western Cape. We’re working towards creating a deeper appreciation for the amazing wildlife the Cape mountains have to offer, and mobilising the broader community into taking ownership of the biodiversity in the mountains they see every day. So please spread the word!
