LEOPARD AND OTHERS IN THE BIRDLIFE OVERBERG CAMERA TRAP

Posted on the 17th January 2017

BirdLife Overberg members will recall that last year we decided to sponsor a camera trap for the CAPE LEOPARD TRUST. This camera was installed in the mountains of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. We are delighted to have received the first batch of images from the Trust and share some of these below. The staff of the Trust were very glad to have trapped Scott (Code-named Boland Male 12 - BM12). This is the dominant male leopard in the Kogelberg region and they are relieved that Scott is still alive and looks fit and healthy!

We once again express our appreciation to the committee who agreed to put forward the initial contribution and to all the individual members who contributed hugely on the evening when the ladies spoke to us.

Enjoy and share!

Wow! Great to see diversity of animals. Scott, of course, takes the prize.
