Leopard Population Research, South Africa

responsible volunteering edgeofafrica dayne davey

As a wildlife research volunteer you will help to set up cameras and create an ID kit of individual leopards from the photos. This
will help the Reserve know the density of leopards on the property, incorporating the information for a global catalogue as well as helping establish more accurate knowledge of the predator-prey balance on the reserve.

Leopards are listed as vulnerable according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) list of threatened species and their populations are decreasing throughout Africa. Actual numbers of leopards are difficult to obtain through traditional aerial census, so using camera traps is a common method implemented by conservationists.

This Wildlife Research volunteer project is part of our: African Wildlife Research Experience
