A Bundle of Surprises

A Bundle of Surprises

The first of this month I came back from my annual holiday. It's been four weeks and a lot has happened at Inverdoorn. Good and bad things, happy and sad moments. Unfortunately, we lost one of our wild cheetahs. One of our males got sick before I left, and while I was gone it was decided it would be for the best to put him down. For two weeks he was treated and spoiled. My team did everything they could to make him feel better, but...

The Rhino Drama

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

The Rhino Drama

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

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 –...

The Big Question

The Big Question

The Big 5 is a term I hear a lot. I hear it so much, it's as familiar as the twitter of a bird during the day and the chirp of a cricket at night. When I meet foreigners or volunteers in South Africa, I love asking them if they know about the Big 5, and if they do, which animals make up this group. So far, I've been duly impressed. Everyone I've questioned has managed to get at least three of the animals right and the other animals...

Marking the Calendar

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

Marking the Calendar

October is an important month for wildlife, as it marks both World Animal Day and World Habitat Day. Animals and habitat are integral to the planet's survival, and at Inverdoorn we take both matters very seriously. Started by ecologists in Italy in 1931, World Animal Day is held every year on 4 October, the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, who was the patron saint of animals. A love of animals is certainly celebrated on this day,...
