Cheetah Conservation Fund
Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is an internationally recognized non-profit dedicated to the long-term survival of the cheetah. Founded in 1990 by Dr. Laurie Marker, CCF is headquartered near Otjiwarongo, Namibia, now known as “The Cheetah Capital of the World” largely due to CCF’s presence and wide-reaching conservation programs.
CCF utilizes science, advocacy, education and outreach to achieve its vision of a world in which cheetahs flourish in peaceful coexistence with all species – including people – in a sustainable system that is protective of the environment, socially responsible and economically viable.
Its conservation initiatives include Future Farmers of Africa, its highly successful Livestock Guarding Dog Program, and Bushblok, an award-winning clean-burning fuel log.
In addition to its operations in Namibia, CCF has 13 chapters in the U.S. and registered Trusts in Namibia, Canada, the UK, Belgium and Australia, with affiliates in the Netherlands, Italy, Japan, France and Germany.
