Ishara is one of our leopards in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.
ISHARA and her brother Bwana were born in 2011. Both are still alive and well and turned 3 yrs old in 2013. Ishara, always a shy cat and not very fond of loud noise and too much human activity around her, lives on top of the valley and has taken over her sister, Oshiwa’s territory who was sadly killed by an un-known leopard when she was 3 years old. MJ raised Ishara and her brother in this area and then moved away once she weaned them. Ishara was seen 55 times during July 2012 and November 2012, but she has moved into very thick, acacia woodlands and loves the mountainous areas which makes it hard to find her. She was only seen 25 times between May and July this year.
