RELEASING CHEETAHS WITH THE WCCC AT INVERDOORN

Chasing Cheetahs

In all the excitement over the past few months at Inverdoorn with the elephants and baby rhinos, the focus seems to have strayed from the cheetahs. This is, however, not the case and there is a lot of activity at the Western Cape Cheetah Conservation (WCCC). It is always a pleasure to catch up with cheetah handler Leah Brousse and she eagerly recounts developments at the WCCC. The good news is that "Banzi and Nushka will soon be...

Western Cape Cheetah Conservation

Cheetah Girl

Going to Inverdoorn is naturally about the animals and their conservation, but it is equally inspiring to meet the staff and talk to them about what they do.

Marlene Nieuwoudt is one of the fresh faces at Inverdoorn, joining the Western Cape Cheetah Conservation as a cheetah handler. She has been there for two and a half weeks, but the ease she...

Where We Stand So Far

In March the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) will take place in Bangkok, Thailand. South African Water and Environmental Affairs' Minister Edna Molewa will most certainly bring the matter of rhino poaching to the fore....

She has been working at Inverdoorn for just over a month and her passion for what she does is evident in every word and every smile.

Big 5 Focus: Lion

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

"The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort." - Chanakya

Big 5 Focus: Lion

Moving on from the majestic elephant, we focus on the lion – the king of the jungle. This title came about due to their superiority among predators, but they can be intimidated by buffaloes and elephants, who also happen to be larger than them. Not that size necessarily matters, as hyenas are bitter enemies and have been known to corner a lion. It is a further misleading title as African lions do not inhabit jungles. Africa...
