The Cheetah Diaries
This series chronicles the lives of the cheetah cubs at the centre located amongst the vineyards outside Stellenbosch to their placement on the farms, spending a year with this unique conservation team; following the highs and lows, and the daily battles. The cheetah cubs are hand reared from the age of two weeks to work as ambassadors with members of the public raising awareness for the wild cheetah?s endangered plight in Africa. The ambassador cheetahs are very used to human contact and enjoy being stroked and receiving attention. Staff members also take cheetahs out to public events to give conservation lectures and run a schools programme educating children and bringing conservation lessons in the curriculum for South African schools. From the emotive eye operation performed on one of the cheetah cubs to Shadow?s charismatic guest appearance as a male cheetah ambassador, we?ll be amazed by the astonishing footage that demonstrates the communal work done by humans and the wild creatures. Viewers will be gripped by the challenges that the Cheetah Outreach team face and hooked on the gorgeous cubs and puppies as the series traces their progress from tiny balls of fluff to working conservationists. The Cheetah Diaries is an incredible profile of the work done by an extra-ordinary team of women, cheetahs and dogs on the Cheetah Outreach Centre. Their Mission: To save the wild African cheetah from extinction.
