Releasing the Cheetahs

Running Free

For the longest time there has been talk of releasing the wild cheetahs at Inverdoorn. It is something which the whole team has longed and hoped for, but it is a delicate process. Having been brought from different countries and often rescued from dire circumstances, it is integral that the cheetahs be properly rehabilitated before being released. That day has finally come and two of the wild cheetahs from the Western Cape Cheetah...

Cheetahs at Inverdoorn

Cheetahs at Inverdoorn

This helps to increase the gene pool...

Meeting the Volunteers: Mélissa Boursier

The conservation of cheetahs at Inverdoorn is giving Mélissa Boursier plenty of material for her doctoral thesis in veterinary sciences. She is in the fourth year of her studies at Nantes, ONIRIS in France which she says "is the best year so far, because now I know I will be a vet." This is a dream she has held dear for a long time, "I wanted to be a vet since a young age. I am happy to be able to do the job I've always wanted to...

“DO YOUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE YOU ARE. IT IS THOSE LITTLE BITS OF GOOD PUT TOGETHER THAT OVERWHELM THE WORLD.” – DESMOND TUTU

Meeting the Volunteers: Kirsty Woodhead

Before meeting Kirsty Woodhead, I knew that she had South African roots and was curious to hear her accent. Having moved to Canada at a young age, she has lost her accent and laments this loss. Kirsty regularly visits the country of her birth and displays such pride at her heritage, that I feel a rush of pride myself whenever she talks about the Rainbow Nation. She would definitely consider returning for good, "I would come back to...
