Wish a Happy Birthday to Dr. Laurie Marker

On January 20, we aren’t just to celebrating a birthday, we’re honoring a visionary in wildlife conservation – Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund. Dr. Marker’s unwavering dedication to cheetahs has inspired a global movement and made a profound impact on wildlife conservation.

On this special occasion, we invite you to join us in celebrating Dr. Marker by helping us to name a cheetah.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Click one of the yellow blocks below (Canada, UK, or US) to donate in the currency of your choice
  • Choose one of the names in the list of people who share Dr. Marker’s January 20th birthday

Your participation not only honors Dr. Marker’s lifelong commitment to these extraordinary animals but also helps us continue our vital work in cheetah conservation. Every donation brings us closer to a world where humans and cheetahs thrive together.

Naming options are also available to name a cheetah with the name of your choice (guidelines provided) at $5,000. This amount represents the full cost of one year of care for a resident orphaned cheetah. Please contact to learn more about naming a cheetah or dog or goat at CCF.
