Negotiations begin on land to protect Caucasian leopard habitat

WLT has raised enough money to agree an initial lease of 800 hectares alongside the Caucasus Wildlife Refuge, thanks to an early response to our Caucasian Leopard Special Appeal. The corridor is vital for the survival of the Caucasian leopard, and you can help WLT reach its first stage target of £20,000 by the end of 2012 with a Christmas gift donation.
