The cheetah, with its remarkable speed and timeless presence in our natural world, stands as an icon of nature’s beauty and power. Yet, did you know that this majestic species is facing severe threats, including illegal trafficking?
The Cheetah Conservation Fund CCF stands at the forefront of safeguarding these incredible creatures. With a legacy dating back 5 million years, the cheetah is one of the oldest big cat species, and its preservation is vital for maintaining the balance of our ecosystems.
CCF conducts extensive research into the biology, ecology, and genetics of cheetahs worldwide. This research forms the bedrock of our education and conservation initiatives. What sets us apart is our unique approach we operate outside protected areas and collaborate closely with local communities where cheetahs reside.
One of our crucial missions involves tracking and combatting cheetah cub trafficking. It’s distressing to note that the illegal wildlife trade continues to thrive, particularly between East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Cheetahs, sought after as exotic pets, are sourced from the wild populations of Ethiopia, Somaliland, northern Kenya, and Somalia, and smuggled primarily through Somaliland to Yemen.
CCF works tirelessly to assist in the confiscation of these cubs destined for the illegal wildlife trade. Our efforts aim to protect cheetah populations and put a stop to this illicit trade that endangers these magnificent animals.
