Did you know that cheetahs are Africa's rarest big cat? Only an estimated 7,000 individuals are thought to survive in the wild, but they cover a vast area so monitoring populations is challenging and time consuming.

Could the answer to finding cheetahs lie with another animal? ZSL's Dr. Sarah Durant explains how conservationists are using dogs to find cats.
