International Day for Biological Diversity

Today is the International Day for Biological Diversity. Sanctioned by the United Nations, it takes place on 22 May every year and highlights various biodiversity issues. This year the focus is on island biodiversity. The need to address issues of biodiversity was raised by the UN Environment Programme in 1988.

A Team for all Seasons

A Team for all Seasons

With things starting to calm down around the lodge and busy season drawing to a close, less guests doesn't mean less work for our cheetah girls. For the cheetahs, winter season is no different to the busy season. Unfortunately Velvet has far less interactions, which means less cuddles from guests; but luckily there are still lots of cuddles from her caretakers. This is my first winter season at Inverdoorn and finally we get the time...

Even though Iziba and Velvet didn't catch the duiker it's always exciting to see how, even though they are tame, they are still so wild and their...

A New Cheetah Girl

A New Cheetah Girl

Hi, I'm Hannah. I come from Germany and am working at Inverdoorn as a volunteer for four months. I've been here for three weeks, and it's my first cheetah report. This week one of the female cheetahs, Nushka, went into heat, so we brought a male cheetah, Joti, into her camp. But he didn't look very interested in her. We put a bush-cam in the camp to see if anything happens between them. While we were checking the camera we saw that...
