Help Us Help The Cheetah
To be a key financial contributor to Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) by representing the voice of cheetah conservation in Canada. By sending support directly to Namibia, we can ensure the cheetah’s continued survival now and into the future.
To help ensure the future of wild cheetahs in their natural habitat by raising awareness and donor support from the Canadian public, educational institutions, industry partners, foundations and NGOs.
We thank all of our donors and key supporters for their continued involvement and sponsorship.Impact Reports
Through an agent agreement with CCF, we are working together to advance and support their integrated programs of research, conservation, educational programs and community development.
We focus on the following programs:
Educational Programs / School Outreach
Along with environmental educational activities conducted at CCF’s Centre, CCF’s Education Team presents outreach programs at schools and community events throughout Namibia. Since 1994, hundreds of thousands of students have participated in our conservation-focused educational outreach.
Future Farmers of Africa
As 90 percent of Namibia’s wild cheetahs live on farmlands and come into conflict with farmers, livestock and game farming interests, CCF conducts a specific environmental education program for the farming community.
Livestock Guarding Dog Program
CCF’s Livestock Guarding Dog (LGD) program is proven to reduce livestock losses to predators. According to multiple long-term scientific studies, farmers with an LGD are less likely to trap or shoot cheetahs. LGDs are a major part of CCF’s holistic conservation strategy.
CCF cares for orphaned cheetahs at its Research and Education Centre. Whenever possible cheetahs are released back into the wild. For multiple reasons some cheetahs would not be able to successfully care for themselves in the wild and they cannot be released.
Illegal Pet Trade
With the help of regional partners and at the request of local governments, CCF facilitates confiscations whenever possible. Although geographically widespread, most reported cases of smuggled cheetah cubs involve the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa.
