I worked with CCF since the 1980's and they started for all the right reasons but the money and fame have changed the organization for the worst. This organization does not help farmers any more- they judge us and push ideas that dont work. The head woman is not trustworthy, however she is very charismatic and people listen to her (and the foreign money pours in). Please be cautious before working with them. They say they do more than they do- Namibians know they just use their millions of US dollars to buy expensive cars and horses. They only let their friends secretly hunt on their land. They could do a lot of good for us but chooses not to . Please dont buy the hype they sell- there are other organizations that are legitimate and helpful.

Absolutely a wonderful organization and cause! Striving to be a professional in the field as well as a hopeful volunteer with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in the near future, the dedication from those who have completed the programs is amazing. They are so willing to share their new knowledge with everyone, which allows us to spread the news to more people! The CCF keeps a completely positive outlook towards the people who live with wild cheetahs each and every day and make the time to hear their stories and concerns, instead of preaching at them. The CCF really wants those who interact with cheetahs to love them as well and work towards both the human and non-human futures together.
