DHL and Panthera partner to conserve South Africa's leopards
Date:11/21/2013

Singapore: DHL, the world's leading logistics company, has entered into an agreement with Panthera, the world's leading big-cat conservation organization, through the Furs For Life Leopard Project to ship faux leopard furs to Africa to help protect this endangered species whose fur is ceremonially worn by followers of the Shembe community in South Africa. On behalf of Panthera, DHL will be shipping on a pro bono basis faux leopard skins from manufacturers in China to South Africa, under a contract that extends to May 2015.

Charles Brewer, Managing Director of DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa said, "Conservation is a major issue in Africa, and for DHL also in this part of the world.

However, there are many endangered species such as the leopard that get little publicity or support."

This innovative animal conservation initiative - designed to protect a species threatened with extinction while at the same time maintaining a long-time South African tradition - was put together by US-based organization, Panthera, whom DHL partnered with as part of its corporate responsibility program. Under the contract, DHL will provide logistics support on a complimentary basis, thereby defraying costs associated with international shipping and distribution to Shembe members in Africa.

Brewer continued, "Panthera's initiative is fantastic and innovative it respects human culture and traditions as well as the conservation of a magnificent animal and so we are providing our logistics expertise and raising awareness of a complex issue through our own network and resources. This partnership between Panthera and DHL is a natural
