The Zimbabwe National Leopard Survey Project is a three-way partnership between The Zambezi Society, the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and WildCRU (Oxford University, Conservation Research Unit). Funds have been provided via a UK Darwin Initiative grant. The project began in 2010 and runs over three years.
The Darwin Initiative Grant covers the costs of conducting spoor counts in several different land-use areas around Zimbabwe in order to provide an estimate of the national leopard population extrapolated from density. Also covered are a leopard public awareness campaign (via website, news and print media) and training of conservation personnel in leopard monitoring techniques.
