SINGATHA CONSERVATION RESEARCH FUND
PHASA Foundation and Singatha Conservation Research Fund (SingathaCRF) launched a collaborating project to “Determine leopard density on privately owned land in South Africa”. Previous reports, based on scientific evidence, from the South African Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) indicated a declining in Leopard populations, yet more monitoring projects is needed to determine if the decline is continuing.
The PHASA Foundation project was launched in the Limpopo Province, being one of the highest contributing provinces in South Africa to suitable leopard habitat. A specific monitoring protocol has been set out by the Scientific Committee for the monitoring of Leopard population. Currently we have launched 6 projects within the Limpopo Province, 3 completed for the year 2020 and 3 projects already well in progress.
