Small Cats in the Big City: learning Table Mountain through the eyes of urban caracals

We are excited to have the Urban Caracal Project be part of SACC COTY 2024.

Dr Gabi Leighton will do a presentation during the day, and have some items on sale.


On the outskirts of our concrete jungle, caracals have carved out a space for themselves. Also known as ‘rooikat’, caracal are the top predators in the Cape Peninsula yet they face multiple threats. How are these wild cats adapting to city life?

Join us for a presentation where Post-Doctoral researcher with the Urban Caracal Project Dr Gabi Leighton will shed light on Cape Town’s shy but charismatic cats. She will share findings from their research into caracal behaviour, discuss the factors that are threatening their long-term persistence and reveal the cats’ amazing resilience in the face of rapid urbanisation.

UCP stickers: R20 each

Botanica Wines FireLily straw wine: R300 per bottle

100% of the proceeds to the Urban Caracal Project
