The Leo foundation supports a project in Nepal which aims to prevent conflicts between leopards and people. Because of the growth of the tiger population, leopards are being pushed out of national parks and enter villages and towns. Here they are known to kill sheep and goats and cause a lot of conflicts
The Leo foundation supports her partner organisation in Nepal to satellite collar leopards in order to follow their movements. To date two leopards have been collared with Irridium satellite collars, one in Chitwan NP and one in Bardia NP.
The leopard in Bardia was recently killed in a conflict with a tiger. However, the leopard in Chitwan is doing very well and is followed closely. When this leopard is moving too close to villages, local communities will be warned for its presence, so that they can take action to protect their livestock.
