NAME: Jo Jo Farqy

GENDER: Female

AGE: (2018) Estimated 10 - 11 years

WEIGHT: (2014) 48Kg

ORIGIN: Okonjima Nature Reserve.

 

Jo Jo is one of our leopards in the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

Jo Jo, who was monitored for the past 2 years already, finally was collared in July 2014. At 48kg Jo Jo is the heaviest female in the Okonjima Nature Reserve. Unlike our other leopards that usually bear names from an African origin with a beautiful and meaningful description, Jo Jo received her name a different way: David Farquharson is a determined and supportive lawyer based in London, who first visited the AfriCat Foundation in 2010 together with his wife Jo. Being massively impressed by the work that is done, David’s wife, Jo Jo apparently offered his future advice and assistance when it comes to any legal proceedings. In the end of 2010/ beginning of 2011 AfriCat unfortunately experienced some tough-times – and if it had not been for David – there was a good chance the Foundation might have had to close down. The only reason we survived was because of the expertise, determination and belief in justice of David and the two law firms Swanturton and Travers Smith (London, UK). David, who is now an AfriCat UK Chairman and a loyal AfriCat supporter has since then assisted with the running of AfriCat UK and various work with the Foundations’ legal requirements and issues. To express our deep gratitude and despite our strict "no-human-name-given-to-any-cat" AfriCat policy, Jo Jo was named after David’s wife, who is also a lawyer and animal lover!

 

JO JO the leopard - prefers thick bush and dense vegetation which makes it extremely difficult to track her. Jo Jo is easily identifiable because of the deep cut in her left ear and a three-dotted line below her right eye.
