WCW Leopard Conservation Project


When Babette de Jonge started her non-profit foundation Wild Cats World in June 2010, she already had her mind set on starting a special leopard project. There are lots of cheetah, tiger and even lion conservationprojects, creating awareness for the bad situation of these species in the wild, but somehow people always seem to have the strange and wrong idea that the leopard numbers are still save. Even though there never really was a leopard census, neither in Africa, nor in Asia. Also leopards are being killed in both countries on a daily basis. In India up till 2011 there were 356 leopards killed in 365 days, but in 2012 these numbers seem to be increasing.
If the killing of leopards continues in this pace, the leopard will get extinct long before tiger or cheetah. Little what we can do, has to be done. Today, as tomorrow might be too late!

So finally on wednesday 20th of June 2012 the WCW leopard project if officially opened at Eastern Cape/South Africa. Apart from creating awareness & doing lots of educational and research projects, like we already did with WCW, the focus of the project will now primarily be to protect leopard from poaching, poisoning, trapping, and over-hunting. The two ambassadorleopards of our project, Felix and Feline, will meet the people (NO interaction with them by tourists/volunteers though!) and they have the important job to convince them they are loveable, clever and gorgeous cats, that deserve respect and a chance for the wild species to survive.
