CCF~ Cheetah Conservation Fund

Mods~ If this is in the wrong place and/or there is already a topic like this, please feel free to lock/move

Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is a conservation is Southern Africa devoted to help save the graceful cheetah. CCF also has a rehab center, for sick or hurt cheetahs. They also care for the cats that can't be realeased back into the wild.

CCF has found out that cheetahs are mostly at risk from farmers, who shoot these beautiful cats because they kill livestock, mainly goats. CCF has started to breed a type of dog called the Anatolian Shepherd. These dogs are trained to bark when a preditory animal approches. Most farmers report that livestock killings have been redused majorly.

CCF was founded and is currently ran by Dr. Laurie Marker.

Cheetahs are truly beautiful and graceful animals, I enjoy watching them run and even rest on various nature shows, mostly Animal Planet.

I'm glad that this organization exists, it's good to see people helping the sicklings and help reduce killings.
everything out of the ordinary is considered weird, i try to stay clear of the eathlings and their fears

I love cheetahs, they are truly beautiful animals. They run throughout the savanna and it is a wonderful thing to watch, if you've ever been to Africa, you would know what this feeling is like.

This sounds like a wonderful topic of conservation - preserving a species such as this is wonderful. Cheetahs are such graceful animals, and people need to recognize that they need our help as much as any creature that's poached/hunted.

Thank you for sharing this with the WolfQuest community - I may donate, if possible.

CCF is great - I'd visit the website every now and then. I should probably start doing that - they always have a wealth of information it seems.

Whoa, that's awesome! Be sure to ask questions if you are able to, especially any you can think of about cheetah behaviors - it would be great to post those answers here. ^-^

I forgot about this thread! Ah the interview was great, even though it was years ago. I'll try to find what I wrote and all the files and post them here.

I'll have to actually hunt for my notes. Whoopsies.

Anyway, I haven't heard much of this place recently. Last I heard they had a fire, but that was almost a year or two years ago, even.
