Projects operating in Namibia
Tusk Trust has been supporting the remarkable work of the Africat team in conserving the big cats of Namibia. The main focus of the project situated at Okonjima, is cheetah and leopard. For a period of 15 years, the team at Africat have studied territories, densities and movements of the leopard and cheetah on farmland in Namibia. Where Livestock farmers and predators co-habit anywhere in the world, there are always problems and Namibia has approximately 6,000 livestock farms on which about 95% of the cheetah and leopard population roam.
