The cheetah is the most endangered cat in Africa with only about 10,000 left in the world -- down from 100,000 at the end of the 19th century.


The strategy of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia is to save the wild cheetah through a three-pronged process of research, conservation and education, beginning with long-term studies to understand and monitor the factors affecting the cheetah's survival. CCF actively works with local, national and international communities to raise awareness, communicate, educate and train.


Additionally, CCF cares for orphaned, old or injured cheetahs that cannot be released back into the wild as they do not have the skills or physical capability to survive. Each cheetah costs CCF an estimated $5,000 a year in care, which includes food, veterinary care and pen maintenance. Therefore, my goal is to raise enough money for the CCF to feed and care for one orphaned cheetah for one year. Can you help?
