Leopard cubs spotted in Wemmershoek mountains

The team at the Cape Leopard Trust, of which we are a sponsor, recently sent us these pictures of BF1, the female leopard roaming the Wemmershoek mountains, with her two cubs.

BF1 is the first adult female leopard identified during the CLT Boland Project camera trap survey of the Limietberg Nature Reserve. Some of first images of BF1, taken during May 2010, revealed that she had two small cubs. During December 2010, CapeNature field rangers saw the female and her (now much grown) cubs during a routine patrol and were fortunate enough to observe them for a quarter of an hour (an extremely rare occurrence indeed!). BF1’s territory falls within the western portion of resident male BM4. She shares the Wemmershoek Dam basin with that of another female leopard, BF3, who also have at least one cub. The Wemmershoek Dam basin seems to be a very productive area for leopards!

At the new Leopards' Leap Vineyards estate in Franschhoek, visitors will be able to learn more about the Cape Leopard Trust's work and the leopards through the use of an interactive wall in the wine tasting area.
