I have been obsessed with leopards since I was a little tuskerman, so I feel especially thrilled and honoured to have won an art competition in South Africa that is being held to raise awareness by the Primate and Predator Project.
The Project is supporting a system whereby Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are being raised and trained to protect local cattle herds from leopard predation - so livestock and predators can live in harmony. My illustration depicts the relationship between them all.
When art can be used as a tool for conservation... that's what it's all about!
Thank you all who voted for the picture!
