I am Daniella, I am a 25 year old woman and I come from a little town called Bathurst in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

All Things New

Hi, my name is Seonaid, and this is my first week at Inverdoorn as a cheetah girl. I grew up on South Africa's West Coast and have always had a passion for wildlife.

Rhino poaching carries on unabated in South Africa. Diminishing rhinos, covert operations, gunfire in the bush and, most recently, the spectacular arrest of an alleged poaching syndicate, make the entire situation read like the plot of a Hollywood action thriller – and as far as these go, good usually triumphs. We can only hope that life will imitate art, and end with a similar outcome. These forms of drama often involve the court...

Race Against Extinction

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Capecheetah-blog

Race Against Extinction

Human beings have an innate need to constantly prove themselves; to do the improbable, to be the best or, as is the case with Usain Bolt, the fastest. He has already proved himself by being the fastest human being alive, and now he wants to take the title of being the fastest land mammal away from the cheetah. But let's face it, even if he somehow managed to achieve this, it would make him a rare exception. We love the cheetah –...
