The Return of the Cheetah Girl

31 March – 6 April

The Return of the Cheetah Girl

Hello, I'm back! As Leah mentioned last week, I volunteered here at Inverdoorn last year and was lucky enough to be offered a job. After a long while back home in the UK battling visa paperwork, I arrived just over a week ago and I couldn't be happier. We've got a great team of staff and volunteers and I feel privileged to work amongst them. My first days back involved me getting back into the swing of things, along with starting my...

Feathered Friends

24 - 30 March

Feathered Friends

This week started with some rain again. On Tuesday Wilna, our General Manager, called me over the radio. She had found four baby mousebirds that must have fallen out of the nest, because of the wind. One was already dead and the other three barely alive. They were stiff, cold, wet and full of ants. With the help of my blow-dryer all three of them came back to life within minutes. I was still very worried though since I didn't know...

Tracking Cheetahs

Tracking Cheetahs

This week started with a successful hunt for the male cheetah. He caught a large female lechwe close to the dam, so we put up the bush-cam near his kill. The first two days we caught pictures of the male cheetah feeding, but no other animals, so we put the bush-cam back up to see if we could find other animals feeding on the kill. We should be checking the camera in the next few days. During my last tracking with Leah, we found the...

Cheetah Tales

This week, like any other week at Inverdoorn, had some exciting events happen. We have been moving a lot of the cheetahs around in the breeding camp, as a few of the females have been in heat. Moving in the females with as many different males as we can will give us the best chance of them mating. It’s been a little frustrating as female cheetahs are very picky about whom they choose to mate with, and there is nothing you can do to...

A New Addition

3 - 9 March

A New Addition

This week started off as a first, and a new beginning for me. I was offered the amazing opportunity to call myself an employee of Inverdoorn, starting on 1st March. This means that from now on I have a lot more responsibilities like tracking, doing cheetah interactions and, of course, cheetah runs. Although this week was quite stressful, I cannot say that I did not enjoy it. The week started with the male cheetah hunting a male...
