The race is on to save the cheetah – with your help, we can win it

The cheetah is Africa’s most endangered big cat. We’ve lost over 90 percent of the world’s population of wild cheetahs in the last 100 years, and if we don’t act today, we could lose the cheetah forever. As the world’s leading organization dedicated to saving the cheetah in the wild. CCF offers a number of ways that you can help the cheetah win the race against extinction. You can do it right now, right where you are:


We’re also grateful to our partners – these are organizations that have contributed significantly to our mission, and we encourage you to get to know them.

Welcome.

If you’re here, it’s a pretty good bet that, like me, you think the cheetah is special. It’s the world’s fastest land animal, and the oldest species of big cat. It’s also Africa’s most endangered big cat. We’ve lost over 90 percent of the world’s wild population in the past 100 years. And if we don’t act now, we might lose the cheetah forever.

What will it take to save the cheetah?

Saving the cheetah means addressing its entire ecosystem, including the people who live in the cheetah’s range. Ninety percent of cheetahs in the wild live outside protected areas, alongside human communities. Securing a future for the cheetah means securing the future of the people who live in cheetah country. For nearly 25 years, Cheetah Conservation Fund has been doing just that – through our celebrated Livestock Guarding Dog program, and our award-winning habitat restoration project, Bushblok. We’re based in Namibia, where the world’s largest population of wild cheetahs lives, and everything we do is aimed at creating a thriving ecosystem so that cheetahs and humans can live together.

I invite you to join us

Be part of our work here in Namibia and around the world. Donate. Visit. Volunteer. While we love hosting visitors at our International Research and Education Center in Namibia, Africa, the truth is that you can help the cheetah right now, right where you are.

We need you, starting today.

Saving the cheetah is not something that any one person or organization can do alone. It takes all of us, working together to win the race and save the cheetah from extinction. Join our mailing list and learn more, be part of our CCF family. The race is on to save the cheetah, and with your help, we can win it.

For Cheetahs Everywhere,
