I always think it is lucky to see a leopard; with their phenomenal talent for disappearing in plain sight, it's entirely up to them whether or not they'll show themselves. Finding a leopard at the end of a rainbow must be especially lucky. Their luck in living with us, however, is running out. Leopards have lost 75% of their historical range, and while they are incredibly adaptable, there's only so far that they can conform when their prey is less adaptable and the pressures from our activities are only increasing. In order to protect big cats like this, we need to conserve at least 30% of the planet by 2030. #CampaignforNature #ThisIsMytrophy #Leopard #BigCats
