The Cape Leopard Trust
The Cape Leopard Trust (www.capeleopard.org.za) was established in 2004 as an active predator conservation working group in the Cape using scientific research as a practical tool to facilitate conservation, particularly in finding solutions to human-wildlife conflict and inspiring a greater interest in the environment through an interactive and dynamic environmental education legacy programme. Since its inception, the Trust has evolved as an authority on leopard conservation in the Cape, and one of the leading authorities in South Africa.
