THE STORY OF LENA

Travelling to Africa and gaining new experiences there was always a dream of mine. Thanks to Inverdoorn Game Reserve the dream became reality. When I arrived I was excited to meet the cheetahs and I was totally amazed how close they are to the humans. Now, three weeks after my arrival, I can walk the chetaah ladies, Velvet and Nushka. I remember the moment when Lisa first gave me Velvet's leash and said: "It's your turn!". A...

STARTING A NEW LIFE

The Future of Joti

Joti has now been moved to the wild cheetah reserve, where he stays in an enclosed camp. It is a nice medium-sized camp with a house where he can sleep at night and a female on the other side of the fence. Hopefully we will be able to put them together for breeding if all goes well, and they like each other. He can start his new and wild life!The other wild cheetahs in the reserve can visit him, but only through the fence so they...

Within five minutes she started to run around and wanted to play with the guests. Izzi is a very brave young cheetah and...

THE MYTH OF THE RHINO HORN'S USE

"You’d Do Just as Well as Chewing on Your Fingernails"

From the plethora of articles on the supposed medicinal value of rhino horn available on the Internet I feel this simple line sums it up rather well. I won't wear you out with more statistics or complex explanations, except to say that if you truly believe in your heart of hearts that rhino horn can cure your ailment, then you might as well be tucking into your fingernails. For one, it's free. It's renewable. And if your demand is...

What if We Legalised Trade in Rhino Horn?

AN EMOTIONAL DEBATE

What if We Legalised Trade in Rhino Horn?

This is an emotional issue. Those on both sides of the fence are becoming more desperate and brazen by the day. With each (almost daily now) discovery of a hacked rhino carcass those of us concerned with the preservation of these animals are pulling out our hair trying to find the one solution that will put a conclusive end to the senseless slaughter. Rhino horn and Rhino horn traditional medicine sold in Asia I admire the...
