Around 700 people attended the ‘Living with Leopards’ event at the Royal Geographical Society last night.

Sponsored by Audley Travel and Jet Airways, £10,000 was raised towards a Leopard Guardian project in Sri Lanka and to support the work of Friends of Conservation.

Award winning photographers, Jonathan and Angela Scott, spoke about the challenges for communities trying to sustain a living on the borders of Yala National Park, Sri Lanka and the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya. They also talked about the challenges of photographing Leopards, which they highlighted through their stunning photographs and compelling narrative.

Respected naturalists, authors and passionate conservationists, the Scotts have travelled to the most remote regions, documenting the last great wilderness areas on the planet.
