Our leopards in LIONSROCK


Leopard Bakari was born in a German zoo in 2009 and was barely two months old when he ended up in Nijeberkoop. Not a lot of space was available for Bakari at the time FOUR PAWS took over the centre in Nijeberkoop and the near presence of lions and tigers was visibly stressful for him. In the years following the takeover, Bakari moved to a larger enclosure and developed positively: no longer he was anxious, but curious and playful instead. When Bakari was ready for more space and independence, FOUR PAWS transfered him to LIONSROCK. In the one-hectare enclosure he now occupies, he spends most of his time in trees, like a leopard should!
