I’m pretty sure the Cheetah Conservation Fund needs no introduction, but for the sake of being thorough and of course, being proudly Otjiwarongo, I will cover the CCF as well.
Probably one of the first Conservation efforts in Namibia, I heard of them while still in primary school. The CCF does a lot of work in schools as of course, the more you educate the youth, the more results you will see in the future generation.
Greetings and welcome to CCF!
The Cheetah Conservation Fund is many things. We are a world class research facility doing groundbreaking research in the biology, ecology and genetics of the cheetah. We’re a conservation organization working to combat the problems that afflict the human communities that live alongside cheetahs and threaten the cheetah as a species with extinction. We’re a place that visitors may come to learn about the cheetah and experience its magnificence and grace more closely.
But we do all that we do for a single purpose – to win the race to save the cheetah. We’ve lost 90 percent of the world’s population of cheetahs in the last 100 years. And we know that if we’re going to have cheetahs around for the next 100 years, we need to act now to address the threats to the cheetah’s survival – human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss, and the illegal pet trade.
Welcome to our website, CCF’s digital home. I invite you to look around and learn about the plight of the cheetah, and what CCF is doing to save it, and how you can be a part of it. Donate, visit, volunteer – however you choose to get involved, we welcome you to our CCF family.
For cheetahs everywhere,
Dr. Laurie Marker
Founder and Executive Director
The Cheetah Conservation Fund does a whole lot of things to help support their cause like producing the Bushblok compressed fuel log, made from invasive thorn bush and the Dancing Goat Creamery which makes goat’s cheese made from CCF’s goats which are protected by its Anatolian Shepherds and Kangal Livestock Guarding Dogs.
But to fully understand what they do, please visit the CCF website.
My favorite part of the Cheetah Conservation Fund is the education they offer regarding conservation.
But of course, they too need help to spread the word and you can help by donating.
