With their slender physique and tan colored body filled with black spots, cheetahs are recognizable to just about everyone.

Found in Africa and famous for being the world’s fastest land mammal, this big cat is facing a threat it can’t simply sprint away from – extinction.

Today, less than 10,000 cheetahs exist in the wild. Habitat loss, the illegal wildlife trade, and human-wildlife conflict are driving this species to its end but thanks to committed and compassionate individuals, hope may be left for the cheetah.

Marlice van Vuuren, a Namibian conservationist, dedicates her life to rescuing and protecting cheetahs and many other animals, through N/a’an ku sĂȘ, the wildlife sanctuary she founded back in 2006 with her husband Dr.Rudie van Vuuren. Because Namibia has the biggest population of wild cheetahs in the world, she feels it is their duty to maintain these numbers and conserve Namibia as this conservation mecca.
