We have classes in the middle of the jungle!! hahahaha! Ok not really but kind of. My college is surrounded by the vastness of the hills and jungles and occasional wild animals! Yes you read it right. We have special guests in the form of wild snakes, lizards, spectacular birds, lots of eagles and LEOPARDS! I had a similar kind of excitement and goosebumps just like you, when I heard this on my first day of college. Story goes that once, all the staff and students had to spend the night in the campus due to hungry leopards loitering around the premises.
No, its not just for the sake of my excitement of someday sensing an uncaged leopard somewhere near me but the fact that we are leaving them homeless! Its population is declining due to habitat loss and hunting for trade and pest control. No wonder there are news of leopards attacks every other day. And hence, this is our own small step to spread the word – Rescue the Big Cats.
