At De Wildt Cheetah Centre

The Cheetah Centre in South Africa was established in 1971, initially as a cheetah breeding project and the Centre has during the past 40 years bred over 800 cheetah cubs.  Various conservation projects have been initiated since its inception which also inlcudes a successful African wild dog breeding programme.
 Known in the past as the De Wildt Cheetah Centre the name has recently been changed to the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre as a tribute to the woman who has devoted her life to the survival of the cheetahs as well as other rare and endangered species.

The wild dog remains one of my most beloved wild animals.
