2019 is the year of the Livestock Guarding Dog. CCF celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its Livestock Guarding Dog program by recognizing the invaluable contribution that LGDs make to conservation efforts in Namibia and worldwide. The program is highly successful with farmers reporting a dramatic decline (80-100%) in livestock losses due to predation.
*Please note: This is an educational fundraising event. WILDLIFE SAFARI is trained and licensed in the care and handling of wild cats, including cheetahs. Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is actively engaged in the effort to end the illegal wildlife trade. Ambassador Cheetahs provide an educational experience for our event guests.
