Found in more than sixty countries, if we can make major improvements in leopard conservation we will in fact be protecting a huge amount of forests, mountains and other landscapes – Jack Kinross
#AntiSnare and Leopard Rehabilitation
CALL TO ACTION – Right now as you read this a leopard is dying in a snare in South Asia. Our main focus currently is prevention and rehabilitation capacity building. More in an update in late May 2022 but in the meantime if you can help us reduce the killing please email firstname.lastname@example.org and watch/read below.
Welcome to Mission Leopard. Those of you who have recently visited or follow our work in other ways will know that for twelve months from 1 February 2022, the current Year of the Tiger, both wildleopard.net and wildtiger.org are parked at this site. We change our theme every few weeks to give emphasis to various aspects of our work. Currently we are focused on #AntiSnare which is closely linked to leopard rehabilitation work at our working site in western Nepal but includes operations throughout the Indian sub-continent.
As described in the video, snare traps are a brutal way of killing wildlife. Big cats are targeted (Read Snapshot) but are also victims of snares set for bushmeat hunting or illegal control of wildlife perceived to threaten crops or livestock.
Since early 2014 WildTiger has worked with various partners on different leopard rehabilitation projects. We currently have projects ongoing and will update as we move forward in our planning and implementation in this highly important decade for wildlife. Please note that at all times the safety and security of big cats we help care for are our utmost priority so we do not publish release locations.
Throughout May we will be adding content to the site including current rehabilitation work for leopards injured in snare traps. There’s updates at the Jack Kinross Commentary page and you can gain other insights to our work at the menu including an overview of problems faced by the leopard at Snapshot.
