Help CCF to Fill a Shipping Container


CCF News

Last year one of our longtime dedicated supporters was able to secure a container that will ship to our CCF Field Research and Education Centre in Namibia. Since then, we have been working to fill the container located in Southern California with much needed supplies.

We need your help to obtain the items or funding to purchase the items. Items will need to be delivered to the container in Los Angeles; we are hoping to send these items by the end of this year. So far, we have received generous donations of veterinary supplies from partner zoos across the country, animal holding crates and a dental x-ray machine from Cupertino Animal Hospital. We also had a generous donation of funds toward the purchase of a cement mixer in memorial of Matthew Bryant DeCesare, to honor his love of nature and animals.

CCF works diligently to combat the major threats facing cheetahs: habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation of their range, Human-Wildlife conflict and Illegal Wildlife Trade. Our research, education and conservation programs are being used throughout cheetah range countries in Africa. To maintain our stronghold the work must continue. For this reason, we need additional supplies. To make the greatest impact possible we are asking for your help to donate from a short list of large scale items. Please email us at if you need more information or want to donate.
