A Leopard's Love

One of the most ingrained misunderstandings in history is the relationship between humans and predators. Be it sharks, wolves, killer whales, grizzly bears or leopard seals, as a species we seem to have demonized these creatures from ancient times to present. Many of these top predators were culled for the simple reason that we fear them; some are still victims of culls, like sharks. As we begin to understand these predators, we realize that we can peacefully coexist and in fact, it is our responsibility to protect these species and their ecosystems.
