We have been recording images of leopards on Ongava with our camera traps:

 

 

 

 

and also with the occasional visual sighting (image courtesy one of our Anti-Poaching Team, Gustav Guxab):

 

 

 

 

but do not have a clear picture of how many leopards are here, how males and females may differ in their use of space, etc.

 So we now have 2 GPS collars ready for deployment, one for a male leopard, and the other for a female. Simply a matter of catching two leopards....

 Join our next blog as we show you how we hope to catch what is undoubtedly the most cunning and secretive of the big cats!
