n April 2008 Cheetah Conservation Botswana released a leopard cub named ‘Botshelo’ meaning life, back into the wild. The cub has been confiscated from a farmer by the Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) and placed in the care of CCB in October 2006 when she was approximately 3 months old. She was kept isolated from human contact and soon developed into a young, playful leopard. At 18 months old she was fitted with a satellite collar donated by SPOTS and released into the wild. Now over one year later, the leopard is continuing to do well. Through her satellite collar information regarding movements and habitat use has been collected, adding to the knowledge of leopard ecology and the success of rehabilitation techniques. The leopard currently occupies a home range of over 550 km2 and has caused no known damage or threat to livestock. The leopard will continue to be monitored until September when her collar will automatically drop off and be retrieved by CCB.
