Over the past several years, Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada has helped raise Canadians’ awareness of the importance of saving the cheetah in the wild. We have organized a number of public events and media interviews across Canada in which Dr. Laurie Marker had the opportunity to explain the challenges of saving the species and to describe CCF’s innovative solutions.
