Morning all. Wonderful news, today the new Cheetahs Alive exhibition opens at the Patrick Mavros gallery in Chelsea, London. Put together with the Cheetah Conservation Fund and Sophie Stafford of BBC Wildlife magazine fame. The exhibition will celebrate 25 years of groundbreaking research into saving Africa’s most iconic big cat by the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), Namibia.
The images represent the work of many of the world’s finest big cat photographers, including Andy Rouse, David Lloyd, Charlie Hamilton James, Federico Veronesi, Paul Souders, Suzi Eszterhas, Angie Scott, Britta Jaschinski and Adrian Stiern and of course little old me 🙂
Together, they offer visitors to the gallery an intimate insight into the life of the planet’s fastest land animal, from the tenderness of a mother with her cubs to the remarkable skill and speed of the hunt. Cheetahs hold a very special place in my heart as they have a very tough life and this can be clearly seen when out in Africa observing them. The numbers are declining, they are becoming harder to find and witnessing the real struggle for life they have first hand really gives them a special place in my heart.
Open from today (21st Sept) until the 7th of October, it really is worth a visit. Entry is FREE and any images sales give valuable funds to the CCF’s invaluable work.
