Opening Day of Leopard Village!

Today we celebrated the opening of Leopard Village with the villages of Muhokya, Kahendero, and Hamukungu!

It was a truly festive and inspiring day of speeches by local leaders, traditional songs and dances by many school children and cultural groups, and a fitting ending with a celebration of roasted goat on wooden skewers. Community members toured the completed site, watched the performances, and celebrated all they had accomplished the past few months.

And remember that if you are traveling to Queen Elizabeth, please visit Leopard Village and support the communities’ efforts on human-wildlife coexistence.  You can read more about Leopard Village here.

Thank you to the community members, local leaders, and all of our partners for making “Leopard Village” a dream that came true!
