ADOPT A LEOPARD

Leopards are solitary creatures, living and hunting alone. Leopards benefit from innate stealth, camouflage and lightning-speed reactions.  They are also superb climbers and often drag their kill into trees out of reach of other predators.

Wild leopards are under threat, largely due to human pressures and habitat loss.

In captivity, leopards repeatedly pace, frustrated because their hunting and territorial instincts are denied. Although they often breed well in captivity, it is extremely difficult to return a captive-bred big cat to the wild and this almost never happens.

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo.  Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.

 

YOUR ADOPTION WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT

Funds from your adoption will help care for rescued leopards at our Big Cat Sanctuary in Shamwari Private Game Reserve, South Africa.  Your adoption will also support our campaign to end captive exploitation of leopards and all wild animals for sport and fun.  You can help provide care and protection for leopards by adopting the Leopard Family below.  

 

LEOPARD FAMILY

Our leopard family lives at our rescue centre in South Africa. Every member of the family needed to be rescued by Born Free. But with expert care they have recovered and live in spacious bush enclosures. 

Help provide the care they need.

 

Your support is changing the lives of threatened animals around the world.  Our work would not be possible without you!
