Teen conservationist: 'Why I adopted a cheetah'

Kenyan teen Some adopted Diji the cheetah when she was 17 and now plans on pursuing a career in conservation.

Now 18, she cares for Diji at the Animal Orphanage, at Kenya Wildlife Centre in Nairobi, after his mother was killed by poachers when he was two-years-old.

She sees this as a way of giving back to the environment, and thinks everyone should be a conservationist.
