Persian leopards
Partner profile


Scientist: Mohammad Farhadinia, DPhil

Nationality: Iranian

Organisation: Future4Leopards Foundation

How PTES has helped me so far: Since 2013, PTES has supported my work and the work of my team in Iran. Our work has been a pioneering effort to understand conservation needs of Persian leopards, to apply novel and practical solutions to resolve the conservation problems and to raise the awareness for leopard conservation in Iran, and abroad. Without PTES, all of these achievements would simply not exist. We are honoured to be a PTES Conservation Partner.

My journey

Since the age of 16, I have been involved in wild cat conservation, when I began collecting observations of cheetahs as a volunteer at Tehran Zoo. After three successful years in medical school, I decided to switch to study wildlife and follow my passion: wild cats.


Why I love Persian leopards

I love all wild cats but, at the moment, Persian leopards really need our help. This is why I set up Project Future4Leopards – to ensure that they have one!


My goal

I want to see a future where humans and wildlife – particularly wild cats – can live side by side, with no conflict. My team and I aim to help both people and animals to ensure both have a secure future.
