For the Love of the Lion

For the Love of the Lion

Lions have received a lot of attention throughout the ages for being king of the jungle, inspiring the fantastic character of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia and, of course, The Lion King. On safaris, many are often keen to see lions above all other animals, not just because they are part of the Big Five, but because they really are magnificent specimens of nature. They are incredible to behold and when you glimpse them in the...

Sister Act

A new six-part BBC wildlife series, Life Story, records the rites of passage of a variety of animals, birds and insects. One of the episodes focuses on cheetahs, so naturally it aroused our interest.

Marking the Calendar

October is an important month for wildlife, as it marks both World Animal Day and World Habitat Day. Animals and habitat are integral to the planet's survival, and at Inverdoorn we take both matters very seriously. Started by ecologists in Italy in 1931, World Animal Day is held every year on 4 October, the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, who was the patron saint of animals. A love of animals is certainly celebrated on this day,...
