Project Update 7 Dec 2017 – A “Coalition” for Full Protection

Hi Jack here,

Many thanks to those following these projects and especially to those loyal to the leopard.  This is the platform I’ll be using for project updates from this point.  It’s a case of trying to keep things simple and because I’m in the field a lot of the time, with this platform it’s very smooth and easy to update with my phone or a light tablet.

The Leopard Task Force is evolving and I’ll hopefully have a couple more detailed updates before the end of the year.  For now though I just want to mention two developments.

The first is news regarding the leopard Dipnani, the young cat orphaned earlier in the year when she was rescued from a well.  The decision was made very quickly to give Dipnani the chance to be reintroduced to the wild but at an age of under six months it was always going to be a long process.  Dipnani has been in isolation at a facility purpose built for her care but with a view to future leopard rescue and rehabilitation situations.  This is why Dipnani is such an important leopard,  she has given us the chance to build on the work with previously reintroduced leopards but with different strategies as she is too wild to be handled.  The absolute minimal human contact (a few seconds check once a week, the rest of the monitoring is done with cameras) is essential.

The Dipnani situation will also allow us to implement non-invasive tracking.  I’ll update later on the technology being proposed but those who have followed my work over the years know I’m extremely careful when it comes to the cats being allowed to live as naturally as possible with safety always in mind. I built the current facility with my bare hands with that philosophy.  I thank those who have supported within the last few months, you have made a difference, together we are giving Dipnani every chance to live wild again as well as future proofing for a species under constant threat.  More on Dipnani early in the new year.

The second major issue for now is the quest to have panthera pardus fusca (the Indian Leopard) added to the Protected Species List here in Nepal.  This is of the utmost importance for the future of the species.  The leopard exists in over 70 countries and the big majority of those have full protection status for the leopard including our neighbour, India.

On this website you can find reference as to why full protection status is essential but once again, when it is appropriate, I’ll update.  Dialogue is ongoing and I am preparing a document with input from people here who have the knowledge and passion to make this happen.  It is becoming a coalition of the willing.  I’ll have an overview document to Government authorities soon and then with the help of everyone else involved we’ll present the full proposal. The goal is for full protection status in Nepal by the end of 2018.  In my heart I hope it can happen a lot sooner but there is a lot of work involved, so my head must rule.

The link Day of the Leopard – The Quest for Full Protection Status gives an outline but we’ll bring more details soon why, with the aspects of wildlife crime and human-wildlife conflict to the fore, increased protection for the leopard will be for the good of not just the big cat itself but for wildlife in general as well as the people sharing space with panthera pardus fusca.

That’s it for now, there’s so much more going on but if you can take away those thoughts and think about supporting our work (HERE) that would be fantastic.

Jai Chituwa, cheers Jack.
