Ishara was fitted with a new VHF collar in May 2019. During the accompanying health examination, 8-year old Ishara was found to be in a good condition and weighed in at 32 kg. Compared to most of the collared leopards, Ishara is less frequently seen. After all these years she is still not as relaxed in the presence of vehicles like many of our other cats, but if she is in the mood is providing great sightings for our research teams and international guests alike. Her last litter was recorded back in 2016, a single female cub, which we believe didn’t survive. Since then, no new offspring of Ishara was observed.
