How you can help

Did you know there are less than 10,000 cheetahs left in the world today and that they are the most endangered big cat in Africa? (That’s down from 100,000 in 1900.) Over the past 24 years, CCF has been working in Namibia to develop a model that enables humans and cheetahs to live and thrive together. And, it is working! Now we need the resources to scale up.

We have set a goal of raising £3 million per year for the next 10 years – to save the cheetah, definitively.

Help us by raising awareness and donating today.
