Why not Adopt a leopard or cheetah spot for Christmas?
Tuesday 1st December sees the launch of the global #Giving Tuesday campaign. Further information: http://www.givingtuesday.org.uk/. AfriCat's Christmas campaign 2015 allows you to help leopards and cheetahs in Namibia and getting something back in return. When you support Adopt-A-Spot. - you get back great photo's of your spot with your name being painted and a card of thanks, with a Chris Packham photo of your preferred carnivore.
By adopting a spot today the international community is getting the chance to support a key part of the AfriCat Foundation's work in Namibia - namely the rehabilitation and welfare of these large cats.
How to Adopt-A-Spot for AfriCat?
At our new Carnivore Care and Information Centre in Okonjima, home of the AfriCat Foundation, we have 2 huge cats painted on our wall. One is a CHEETAH and the other a LEOPARD. Their spots and rosettes are not coloured in yet – but as soon as you ADOPT-A-SPOT, the cheetah and leopard will slowly get their spots back! If you are a lion lover there is an option for you too....companies, schools and other organisations can also take part and Adopt-A-Spot.
