In 1979, Laurie Marker’s passion for cheetahs led her to leave her family, friends, and home (the USA) for Namibia to save the species.

This splendid feline is a hunting machine, the fastest of all land predators, but also a desired trophy for poachers. To protect them she came up with an unusual solution: reintroduce another endangered species, the Anatolian shepherd, the only dog capable of thwarting cheetahs away.

Today, Laurie is regarded as the leading world expert on this animal.
