Our
Approach

The Cape Leopard Trust is an active predator conservation working group, established in 2004 and the leading authority on leopard conservation in Western Cape, South Africa. Its mission is to use research as a tool for conservation, finding solutions to human-wildlife conflict and inspiring interest in the environment through an interactive and dynamic environmental education programme.



Their holistic approach to leopard conservation combines impact-driven research, applied conservation, community engagement and environmental education to protect leopards and the landscapes they depend on, as well as advocating for the protection of broader biodiversity and uplifting and capacitating local communities.

Conserving the Cape leopard in a changing landscape.

Current objectives for the Cape Leopard Trust are to collate and consolidate all existing leopard data from across the Western Cape Province. This will be used to identify knowledge gaps, inform further field studies, and direct conservation efforts. Conservation efforts focus on quantifying and addressing identified threats to leopards, such as human-wildlife conflict and prey-based depletion through illegal snaring. Equally as important as scientific research is education and social development. The Cape Leopard Trust Environmental Education Programme was established in 2009 with the aim of providing children and adults with quality experiences that teach them more about the wilderness and themselves.

Educating and empowering local people, young and old, to think differently about protecting natural resources by connecting them with nature and instilling an attitude of reverence, wonder and respect for leopards and the environment.

“Over the last fifteen years the Cape Leopard Trust has had the privilege of working in one of the biodiversity hotspots of the world. We have built strong, meaningful relationships, and as we plan our road map for the future, our goal is to forge new partnerships that will enable us to amplify our efforts.”

Our
Approach

Jamma International is proud to be supporting African Parks with their sustainable approach to wildlife conservation, economic development and poverty alleviation to ensure that each park is ecologically, socially, and financially sustainable in the long-term.


Founded in 2000, African Parks takes a clear business approach to conserving Africa’s wildlife and remaining wild areas, securing vast landscapes and carrying out the necessary activities needed to protect the parks and their wildlife. The organisation maintains a strong focus on economic development and poverty alleviation with a responsibility to make sure these areas survive into the future.

Working with local communities to ensure the sustainability of the use of their natural resources.

African Parks takes on the complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of 19 national parks and protected areas in 11 countries covering over 14.2 million hectares in Angola, Benin, Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Jamma International has been working with African Parks since 2018, to support their community projects within the Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Congo and before that anti-poaching work in Majete Wildlife Reserve, Malawi.

Where wildlife survives and thrives, there’s the opportunity for people to do so as well. All of this is inextricably linked.

“This is conservation at scale. If we can ensure that a significant portfolio of parks is handed over, intact and functioning to the next generation of conservation leaders, then I think we have fulfilled our responsibility.” Peter Fearnhead, African Parks CEO
