LeopardEye System for Human-wildlife conflict mitigation & anti-poaching/trafficking

WildTiger interacts with appropriate agencies, organizations and individuals to develop and implement LeopardEye. The system is deployed on a case by case basis.

The  technology component includes the use advanced camera systems (real time transfer of images).  LeopardEye uses strategies based on location and situational dynamics to provide information to mitigate human and wildlife conflict and combat wildlife crime.  We also collaborate with the appropriate organizations with regard to genetic analysis to aid forensic investigation.

We’d especially like to thank the Center for Molecular Dynamics Nepal (CMDN) and ProsChoice Australia for their collaborations and support.

WildTiger has a strong emphasis on anti-snare.

 

A Typical Example…

A leopard killed in a snare 28 April (Kailali, west Nepal), these snares are usually set for wild meat (deer, boar etc) but trap leopards and other predators, the body parts then entering the illegal wildlife trade market.  WildTiger is committed to reducing snare trap killing.  This incident is an example of an ongoing problem throughout India, Nepal and Pakistan in the South Asian region where the Indian leopard (panthera pardus fusca) is particularly marginalized with poaching and retaliation killing at seriously high levels.   WildTiger is putting strong focus on the protection of the leopard in South Asia as the species suffers from a lack of conservation emphasis.

Due to safety and security reasons (for both people and wildlife) we limit the amount of public online information within the elements of wildlife crime and rescue/rehabilitation.
