Educating People on the Value of Cheetah

Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia works in communities where cheetah can be found to help educate farmers and youth about beneficial cheetah/human relationships. They teach farmers on how to identify signs of cheetahs and how to prevent livestock losses to cheetahs. Educators from CCF go to schools with activity books and outreach programs to encourage youth to promote cheetah conservation. They have even created an entire curriculum about cheetahs for use in the local schools.


Help our Cats

Cheetahs are the fastest land animal in the world, but even that speed is not preventing them from being endangered. Namibia is home to the largest remaining population of wild cheetahs in the world, most of which are found on privately held and communal land. Conflicts between farmers and cheetah, and overall fear of cheetahs as predators have led to many cheetah being shot and killed. Their survival is critically dependent on the education of farmers on predator-friendly farming practices and the Namibian youth about the importance and value of predators for a healthy ecosystem.
