Leopard Project 2018


We are so sad to report that the leopard in our last post was found dead last week. When our team noticed his GPS collar was not moving they immediately went to assess the situation. He was found deceased with a shattered leg, and it was determined he was most likely killed by an older male leopard. Devastating news. Our GPS tracking collar was retrieved and has been placed on a new older male leopard (N196) in Okakarara, a small town in Namibia's Otjozondjupa region. N196 was humanely trapped on a farm, collared and released in the same spot where he will go on to maintain his territory. The farmer will receive updates on his whereabouts and activity. The collaring of this leopard saved his life. More details in the report below, provided, along with the photos, by our partner, N/a'an ku se.
