Who we are
Cheetah Conservation Fund UK's mission is to increase awareness in the UK about the cheetah and the threats it faces in the wild, as well as fundraising to support our conservation programmes in Namibia and throughout the cheetah's range. There are now less than 7,000 cheetahs left in the wild, making it Africa's most endangered big cat species. We tackle each of the threats to the cheetah's survival through innovative conservation projects, including provision of livestock guarding dogs, combatting illegal wildlife trade, educating future conservationists, campaigning for legislative change and developing alternative livelihoods for those living within the cheetah range countries.
CCF’s conservation programmes have effectively stabilised and increased the wild cheetah population in Namibia.
We are saddened to report the recent passing of three of our resident cheetahs at CCF Namibia, who will be missed dearly by our staff and volunteers. Harry Harry, her sister Hermione and brother Ron were brought to the Cheetah Conservation Fund in 2005 after losing their mother when they were about two months old. […]
