Who We Are

Who We Are

The mission of the Cheetah Conservation Fund UK is to increase awareness in the UK about the cheetah and the threats it faces in the wild. CCF UK also raise funds to support the work of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia and throughout Africa.

Founded in Namibia in 1990 by Dr. Laurie Marker, CCF is the global leader in research and the conservation of cheetahs. CCF’s mission is to be the internationally recognized centre of excellence in the conservation of cheetahs and their ecosystems. CCF works with all stakeholders to develop best practices in research, education, and land use to benefit all species, including people.

The Most Endangered Big Cat in Africa

The vast majority of wild cheetahs live outside protected areas, coming into conflict with humans that share the same landscape. There are now less than 8,000 cheetahs remaining in the wild and the cheetah is the most endangered big cat in Africa. Saving this magnificent animal from extinction requires innovative conservation methods that address the welfare of both the cheetah and human populations over large landscapes. CCF has developed a set of integrated programmes that work together to achieve this objective. CCF’s conservation programmes have effectively stabilised and even increased the wild cheetah population in Namibia.
