Leopards have been heavily poached for their fur, paws, tails and whiskers. They are in constant conflict with humans due to habitat encroachment and their prey is in decline because of the bush meat trade. These fascinating and elusive animals are extremely vulnerable and the work that these charities do is vital to their survival.
Conservation South Luangwa and The Zambian Carnivore Programme are two wonderful initiatives that do incredible work to protect, educate and communicate about leopard and wildlife conservation as a whole. South Luangwa is the area in which Chipazuwa, the leopard in my drawing, lives and is the reason I have chosen to donate a portion of profits from the sale of this limited edition print run to these charities.

- Leopards are solitary creatures with large territories; up to 30 square miles!
- Leopards can jump up to 6 metres high.
- Leopards hide their prey in trees away from ground scavengers.
- Choice of prey differs depending on availability.
- Cubs stay with their mothers until around 2 years old.
Poaching and hunting
- The leopard is considered one of the most highly sought after large cats by hunters for their fur, claws, paws and whiskers. Clothing, rugs and trinkets are symbols of wealth in many parts of the world.
- Leopards are often hunted by humans as they are considered a nuisance by villagers.
- Hunting, both legal and illegal is difficult to regulate and is mismanaged.
What can we do?
We must take responsibility for what we buy. Although I personally find even the idea of faux fur quite nasty, if you are someone who buys from markets please check the source. Real fur is often falsely labelled and has been illegally imported.
We can support charities such as those mentioned above financially and continue to educate ourselves and those around us about the dangers wildlife face.
