The AfriCat Foundation

Founded in 1991, The AfriCat Foundation is based on Okonjima Nature Reserve, a private reserve dedicated to conserving wildlife.

AfriCat is perfectly situated to conduct ecological research focusing on a variety of rare and endangered species. As Okonjima is an enclosed nature reserve, one component of AfriCat’s research focuses on understanding the ecology of leopard and brown hyaenas living within Okonjima, with the ultimate aim of producing informed, sustainable metapopulation management guidelines for these species.
