Say "cheese"! Wildlife ACT, Panthera and Ezemvelo KZN #Wildlife have an ongoing Leopard camera trap survey across northern KwaZulu-Natal to monitor leopard population trends; but the #cameratraps also provide insight into a variety of other species. There are 60 camera traps set up throughout Ithala Game Reserve and these cameras allow us to see the natural wonders of the wild when the animals think no one is watching.
Camera traps are a vital #conservation tool as they allow us to observe animals in their environment and witness their natural behaviour and habits without the influence of human presence. #Leopard Survey volunteers were delighted by the opportunity to see a side of these animals that is normally unseen. It is clear from these photos that we are not the only species that has mastered the art of the #selfie.
The Wildlife ACT Leopard Survey is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Find out how you can participate in this unique conservation project by visiting our website.
