#### Abstract

Let $N$ be a compact manifold with a foliation $\mathscr{F}_N$ whose leaves are compact strictly convex projective manifolds. Let $M$ be a compact manifold with a foliation $\mathscr{F}_M$ whose leaves are compact hyperbolic manifolds of dimension bigger than or equal to $3$. Suppose we have a foliation-preserving homeomorphism $f : (N,\mathscr{F}_N) \to (M, \mathscr{F}_M)$ which is $C^1$-regular when restricted to leaves. In the previous situation there exists a well-defined notion of foliated volume entropies $h(N, \mathscr{F}_N)$ and $h(M, \mathscr{F}_M)$ and it holds $h(M, \mathscr{F}_M) \leq h(N, \mathscr{F}_N)$. Additionally, if equality holds, then the leaves must be homothetic.
