The September 2013 UK big cat conference was a great success. Over the years with a surge in interest in the British big cat phenomena many groups and individuals have become actively involved in the research. One thing that becomes very apparent during conferences is that we don’t always agree on everything, we all do however learn an awful lot from each over. I very much enjoyed giving my lecture on urban leopards across the world and how it relates to my research areas in Buckinghamshire. I also enjoyed meeting some of the other researchers who I have known of and had a lot of respect for for a very long time.
I have been interested in mystery wild cats in Britain since I was a young Boy.
