She is recognised as one of the world’s leading cheetah experts. She conducted ground-breaking research on the re-introduction of captive-born cheetahs into the wild. It was at this time that she learned about the conflict between livestock farmers and cheetahs.In 1990, Laurie founded her international non-profit organisation and set up its headquarters in Namibia in 1991. From humble beginnings in a tiny farmhouse in rural Namibia to an unparalleled conservation model for predator conservation, Laurie has built a world-renowned organisation.
Laurie’s tireless work to unite a nation, continent, and the world in the effort to save the cheetah is impressive.Laurie chairs the Conservancy Association of Namibia (CANAM). She has learned that with improved livestock and wildlife management techniques, cheetahs, people and livestock can peacefully co-exist.

In 2000 she was recognised as one of Time Magazine’s Heroes for the Planet and in 2008 was presented with the Gold Medal Award from the Society of Women Geographers.
