Race for Survival

The world’s fastest land animal, the sleek and long-legged cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), is losing its race for survival. Once a common animal found on five continents, the cheetah has since become an endangered Species.

To most of the world, the cheetah is an amazing animal admired from afar. To Dr. Laurie Marker, cheetahs are close friends with whom she works on a daily basis. Yet, in spite of being the fastest creatures on earth, even cheetahs cannot out run extinction.

About Dr. Laurie Marker

As recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine, Dr. Marker of the Cheetah Conservation Fund, (CCF) has dedicated her life to studying the cheetah and its habits, and preserving its way of life. She set up the not-for-profit Cheetah Conservation Fund in 1990 and moved to Namibia, developing a permanent Conservation Research Centre for the wild cheetah. In 2000, Dr. Marker was recognized as one of the “Heroes for the Planet” by Time Magazine.  She also received the prestigious Burrow’s Conservation Award. Dr. Marker was also featured as Person of the Week on ABC’s Charlie Gibson show. We are honored to have her visit Safari West for our staff, guests and friends.
