In Africa

Hi everyone,

Sorry to be MIA but we’ve been in the bush with no internet seeing lots of amazing & inspiring animals. In researching other cats and conservation projects, we discovered a cheetah foundation that takes in sick and wounded cheetahs to rehabilitate them. These cats, while not the king of beasts, are incredibly beautiful with great speed and elegance. They are more similar to your domestic cat – if you are allergic to one you are allergic to the other – and they behave with the same nonchalant attitude. It’s wonderful to see that other people are taking on conservation projects as the declining numbers in all wildlife here is staggering. When you hear about the hundreds of thousands of animals that used to migrate through Africa one can’t help feeling like we are in a deserted desert today. Our wanderings are underlining the need for this project more than ever.
