    Research on Leopard Conservation in South Africa

    Researchers from Panthera and the University of KwaZulu Natal have designed a leopard conservation and management plan which included a ban on hunting female and underage leopard and action to reduce human-leopard conflict.

    The new regulations were enacted in 2006 and by 2008 the collected data showed that the plan worked. Compared to the pre 2005 era, leopard lived longer, people killed fewer and the population grew, moreover female leopard raised more cubs.
