Bidding to Save Cape Leopards from Extinction



Stylish Camps Bay venue, La Med was elegantly transformed into a hive of activity on Thursday 22 March 2007 as 300 guests bid on items ranging from wine to books and art to jewellery to raise funds for the Cape Leopard Trust. Established to save the species from the brink of extinction, its patrons are well aware of the challenges facing the Trust. They’re also well aware that not a single leopard has died by the hands of man since its inception. Franschhoek-based Leopard’s Leap Wine, which donates a percentage of its sales to the Trust, donated R120 000 while Deutsche Bank added a further R50 000 to the total R400 000 raised on the evening.

Before handing-over to auctioneer Joey Burke from Auction Alliance, Hein Koegelenberg (pictured far right), CEO and founder the global wine label Leopard’s Leap Wines said, “We’re here for three reasons tonight. Firstly, we’re here to take an active role in conservation. These endangered animals need our help. Secondly, we’re here to celebrate the Trusts’ success and pay tribute to Quinton Martin for project managing the Trust flawlessly. And finally, we’re here to ensure the continued success of the Trust by making a contribution. To that end, Leopard’s Leap Wines is handing over R100 000 raised between May to December last year as a result of sales. So please, continue buying our wine.”

   

Quinton Martins, Project Manager for the Cape Leopard Trust captivated guests with exciting personal accounts of his expeditions tracking the Cape’s apex predator through the Cederberg Mountains. Leopard’s Leap Wine continued flowing to the sound of the ocean well into the evening. After all, there were 400 000 conservation related reasons to celebrate.
