Today, human-wildlife conflict not only manifests itself in the form of livestock raiding carnivores and retaliatory killings, but also in the form of increased human activity encroaching on wildlife. Sadly, this was the case with a cheetah cub whose mother was hit and killed by a car. Estimated to be just 4 – 5 months old when her mother was killed, the cub was rescued and brought to N/a’an ku sê. Timid and fearful, newly dubbed “Kitty” quickly found comfort and company with new playmates Shiloh, Odyssey and Wonder.

Kitty spends her days in the large and spacious enclosure with the others, enjoying cheetah antics.

We do not receive any government funding and are solely reliant on generous donations to continue caring for the many orphaned, injured and conflict animals that call N/a’an ku sê home. We simply could not do what we do without our supporters and donors.
