Weekly post from our Conservation Committee featuring our ongoing Clouded Leopard Project.

Clouded leopards are arboreal creatures, meaning they spend a lot of their time climbing trees. Did you know that clouded leopards have flexible rotating ankle joints that allow them to climb down head first like a squirrel? Their paws and claws are powerful enough that they can climb upside down underneath tree branches and can even hang by their back feet! This adaptation makes them one of the best climbers in the cat family.

If you would like to help us conserve the clouded leopard, check out our Giving Back page on our website. We are raising funds to help support the Clouded Leopard Project and Project Neofelis. Please visit the link below to make a donation or purchase a clouded leopard inspired gift to preserve these amazing animals! All proceeds will go towards clouded leopard conservation efforts.
