Cheetahs

WRITTEN BY // Jenny Adenyoh CATEGORIES // Capecheetah-blog

Cheetahs

In the 1970s, the cheetah population was estimated at 15 000 in Africa. Today, the known cheetah population in the wild is approximately 6 000; half the population is located in Namibia. A decline of at least 30% is suspected over the next 18 years. The decline is primarily due to habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as the killing and capture of cheetahs as livestock predators, but also for trade. Because of this fragmentation...

A Farewell to Animals

This weekend wrapped up my last few days at Inverdoorn. I have been here just over three months and what an experience it has been.

Female The female is the one we usually spend most of our time with during tracking since she has hot spots all over the reserve. In the wild, female cheetahs are solitary, and this statement is confirmed by how well she...

Every year since 2008 the number of rhinos being poached for their horns has increased. In 2013 over 1 000 rhinos were poached. This year the number of rhinos already killed is on track to beat the previous year. Both the Black and White rhino have a long history of being overhunted. Populations have fluctuated from being decimated to increasing populations, back to decimation. In the 1960s there were only a few remaining Southern...

The Return of the Cheetah Girl

Hello, I'm back! As Leah mentioned last week, I volunteered here at Inverdoorn last year and was lucky enough to be offered a job. After a long while back home in the UK battling visa paperwork, I arrived just over a week ago and I couldn't be happier. We've got a great team of staff and volunteers and I feel privileged to work amongst them. My first days back involved me getting back into the swing of things, along with starting my...
