This is a fascinating wildlife tale that has a difference: it looks at one woman's personal contribution towards conservation built on the realization that without innovative action, several of South Africa;s wildlife species faced sure and swift extinction.As a partial accounting of her work, Ann talks about the 'discovery' of the king cheetah, the breeding requirements of cheetahs in captivity, and the heavy toll that people extract from cheetahs, both in the wild and in captivity.
