Project Team

Future4Leopards is run by a team of highly trained and expert conservationists, each with considerable background experience, who share their expertise and passion to enhance leopard protection in Iran. Their shared aims are to enhance the status of the leopard on the ground, to pursue evidence-based conservation, and to engage key rural groups in safeguarding leopards in the reserves where we work.
