The Landmark Foundation
The Landmark Foundation was established in 2004 in response to human-predator
conflict in South Africa. The foundation promotes a change from the
indiscriminate, ecologically and ethically unacceptable control of predators
on agricultural land to the protection of livestock through guardian dogs,
collars, alarm systems and adaptive management.
To achieve this change they’ve embarked on predator rescues, research on leopards
and smaller predator populations, research on effective livestock protection
methods, education programs, work with farmers, advocacy actions, the expansion
of wildlife friendly habitats and the establishment of a wildlife friendly green
label called Fair Game.
Our ongoing leopard project is now one of the largest
studies in world using GPS collars and survey cameras to help us understand
the relationship between people and predators.
