Leopards are the last of the big five roaming free outside game reserves and
national parks in South Africa. It is here (the largest land mass of Africa), where
leopards are under threat.
Ingwe aims to conserve and protect this precious resource. After all leopards are
at the top of the food chain and as such a key indicator of a healthy eco-system,
which in turn affects us all.
To do this we are gathering data on leopard density, behaviour and population
dynamics outside of formally protected areas, enabling reasoned policy decisions
to be made. Remarkably this data does not currently exist. We need to fill this gap
in understanding before its too late.
