Aquila Leopard Research

Photographs of leopards are an exceptionally useful tool, since each leopard has a distinctive spot pattern by which it can be identified, like our fingerprints. Camera traps can be deployed singly, but ideally a camera station should consist of two cameras opposite each other. Such double stations are used to compile "leopard identikits", photos of both an individual's left and right flanks, which are crucial in estimating the number of individuals in an area.
An added advantage of the camera traps is that they are like permanent fieldworkers, working day and night, in rain or sunshine. They are non-selective, capturing everything that moves, thus providing the ideal opportunity to gather data on other mammals as well. These photos give us information about prey availability, movements plus how frequent a leopard uses the same path to monitor its territory.
