2021 "Save the Cheetah" 5k walk/run
CCF's Arizona Chapter highlighted a weekend to raise awareness to save wild cheetahs.
March 2019 Tasting & Tapas for Cheetahs event
Cheetah Kids hosted Dr. Laurie Marker at the Wilhelm Family Vineyards at Ventana for an evening of cheetah news and wine tasting and tapas. Dr. Marker shared good news about the Cheetah Conservation Fund's successful 25 years of their Livestock Guarding Dog program and the re-wilding of several orphan cheetahs.
She also shared about the Illegal pet trade making a negative impact on the wild cheetah population. It has become a huge problem in the Horn of Africa. CCF is presently working in Somaliland to support and educate local Somalilanders to care for the very young and vunerable wild cheetah cubs confiscated from smugglers. Thank you to our cheetah supporters for coming to the event. It is obvious cheetahs need humans to care and share about their struggle to survive.
