In 2017, Hannah Emde and a team of experts founded the non-profit “Nepada Wildlife e.V.”, which is committed to global nature and species conservation. Nepada Wildlife promotes sustainable, local species conservation projects and raises awareness about the loss of biodiversity.
The name Nepada, is deriven from Nebelparder, which means Clouded Leopard in German. This rare predator was the first animal Hannah worked with in the wild. The Sunda Clouded Leopard (Neofelis diardi) is found only in Sumatra and Borneo and is considered critically endangered (CR). The species had not been studied enough and there is very limited data available from the wild up to date. Find more information about projects, events, and the NGO at www.nepadawild.life.
Among other things, Nepada Wildlife has developed innovative educational materials that convey the intriguing nature of the rainforest and educate people about the loss of biodiversity. The augmented reality app 4Wildlife offers an interactive and playful approach to the global issue of sustainability. nepadawild.life/education.
