Friends and Foes

Friends, in the Cat Ambassador Program; foes in the wild.

A recurring question is, “Why a cheetah and a dog?”

Such a good question. 

The Cat Ambassador Program’s goal is to teach science and conservation with the able assistance of their animal ambassadors.  In Africa, an ongoing success story in conservation is the effective use of guard dogs protecting farmers’ herds.  Then those farmers are less inclined to kill predators, cheetahs, on sight.  This is an “Everyone Wins” story.  Tommy T and Pow Wow reinforce that story by their very presence.

So, Kathy (off camera) is telling that story as Linda and Alicia work with Tommy T and Pow Wow.
