A beautiful face with vigilant, amber eyes scanning the savanna for any predators or prey. Life and death are thoroughly intertwined. Decades of persecution, loss of habitat and prey have now left our generation with the task of saving this inspiring cat from becoming extinct. Coexistence is the key to survival for both wildlife and people.
“I painted this serene moment to capture the grace of the cheetah and the warm colours of the African plains. In 18-20 months, this cheetah cub will be ready for its own journey of life, birth and death. The cycle depends upon a skilled, caring mother as she nurtures her young, hunts for their next meal, and defends her cubs against dangers. The fastest animal is already running it most important race: the one for its own survival.” ~ Daniel Taylor
