Clouded Leopard Conservation

The Houston Zoo loves its clouded leopards and wants to do everything we can to protect them in the wild.

The Houston Zoo supports clouded leopard protection efforts in Asia through: 

  • Partnerships with the Sabah Wildlife Department, Danau Girang Field Centre, Cardiff University, HUTAN, and the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at the University of Oxford: These organization work together to advance the understanding and conservation of these threatened carnivore species. The goal of this program is to determine the distribution and conservation status of these animals in the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary in Borneo, Southeast Asia.

How the Houston Zoo helps:

  • We monitor camera trap photos from Houston that are taken in Borneo and help researchers identify animals in these photos.
