A recent Africa Geographic magazine article entitled The Sacred and the Profane features the innovative leopard conservation work of Panthera’s Leopard Program Coordinator, Tristan Dickerson, who is working to reduce demand for leopard skins among members of South Africa’s Shembe Baptist Church by creating an affordable and realistic faux leopard skin. Today, Shembe followers practice the Zulu tradition of wearing spotted cat fur (mainly leopard) during religious celebrations.
Join us tonight at New York City’s McNally Jackson bookstore at 7pm to hear Panthera's CEO, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, read a story from the newly released book, The Moment, about how he became interested in wildlife conservation. The Moment includes a collection of personal stories from writers both famous & obscure about one moment that profoundly impacted their lives.
