VACorps intern, Jean Dunn, is the current Marketing & Communications Assistant at The Cape Leopard Trust. She wrote this important article about the relationship between hunting and conservation of leopards and other animals who face similar threats of extinction. Jeanie says, “Every day these beautiful and enigmatic leopards are decreasing in numbers because of our own failure to properly manage wildlife hunting and encourage their long-term survival.” This is a must-read for any VACorps candidate who is interested in big cat conservation.
