FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cheetah Conservation Fund Re-Launches “Cheetah.org” Website
April 7, 2014 (Alexandria, VA) – Cheetah Conservation Fund, the world’s leading organization dedicated to saving the cheetah in the wild, is pleased to announce that it’s website, cheetah.org, has been re-launched with a completely updated look and feel, new architecture and refreshed content.
The project was undertaken last year and made possible through a generous grant from Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, and utilized the design talents of Openbox9, a Washington, DC-based web design firm that specializes in assisting non-profits. Among the new features that visitors will enjoy are a more streamlined navigational structure, increased use of photo galleries, and a searchable library of CCF’s publicly available reports and research.
“A website is such an important tool for conservation in the 21st Century,” says Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder and Executive Director of CCF. “We’re trying to draw the world together to save the cheetah, and having a compelling presence on the Internet is a critical component of that effort. We’re very excited about the new website, because it will help those who don’t know us well understand who we are, what we do, and how they can help.”
Visitors may view the new website at www.cheetah.org. CCF would like to thank both Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies and the team at Openbox9 for their invaluable assistance.
