We have been involved with innovatively conserving common leopard species, addressing threats and raising awareness since 1970s. Common leopard is one of our priority species and we have launched numerous projects to ensure its survival.
Through various interventions, we have been able to carry out extensive scientific researches using camera traps, genetic analysis and radio collaring regarding food habitats, home range and population of common leopards.
Awareness raising has always been a major component of the projects; through trainings, documentaries, video clips, brochures and booklets, we have educated the local communities regarding the importance of common leopard and as a result, the killings have reduced significantly.
To compensate local farmers and ensure harmony between communities and common leopards, we have also established community-based livestock insurance schemes to reduce economic losses of the local communities.
