The Cheetah Challenge

The Western Cape Cheetah Conservation (WCCC) at Inverdoorn Game Reserve is a rescue and rehabilitation centre for cheetahs. With only 6 000 cheetahs left throughout the world, it has become one of the most endangered big cats. In addition to rescuing cheetahs and raising awareness about the threats to their survival, the WCCC has implemented breeding programmes in an effort to combat declining numbers in the population.

Much Ado About Cheetahs

Winter has hit Inverdoorn and with the snow on the mountains creating a backdrop that is as magnificent as what we see in summer, the frosty season has its own wonders. The cheetahs, however, are not perturbed about the cold. "They don't like the rain, but they don't care about the cold," says Leah Brousse, the main cheetah handler at Inverdoorn. The rain also means that they cannot always go on their runs. "We do walks, but they...

Indaba 2013

Indaba 2013

Arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban for the 2013 Indaba we were greeted with a wet welcome. Rain, accompanied by a biting chill, contradicted the legend of Durban's warm weather. This meant that the first day of Indaba on 11 May was a busy one, as the prospect of being indoors was a good one. Taking place at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), this year was the 34th Indaba since its inception in 1979...

Save the Cheetah

I have not written in a while and when I saw that Balekha wrote about poaching and horn trading, I thought I should tell you more about cheetahs, because we are in trouble too. There are lots of reasons why we are in danger. Here are the four main problems: CompetitionSpaceInterbreedingHumans Humans are number four on my list, but they are the number one danger to us and the reason for numbers two and three. I will explain all the...

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...
