    Who Takes Care of the Resident Cheetahs?
    By - Michael Kraus - CCF Intern
    When you arrive at CCF you will be probably overwhelmed by all the information that you get. A million facts about cheetahs are explained to you in the museum of the visitor centre. Shortly after you will be taken to a safety and security briefing around CCF. While you are still thinking about the snakes, scorpions and...

    PHD Research - Study on Captive Cheetahs
    By - Ashley Franklin - PhD Student Research Intern

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland College Park (USA) and I work with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute to investigate how stress is related to disease in captive...

    Keeping an Eye on Amani
    By - Beth Fellenstein (Taken from blog post) - Constituent Relationship Manager
    Caring for resident cheetahs often requires more than just routine feeding. About seven months ago, one of CCF’s resident non-releasable cheetahs, Amani, developed a corneal lesion on her right eye: a cloudy area with a white speck barely visible. Initially the condition did not seem to irritate her, and we really...

    Rainbow and Aurora
    By - Jenny Bartlett - Cheetah Keeper
    On the 8th February 2013 CCF received a call from a farmer telling us they had a young cheetah cub that was extremely weak.  They had found her on the side of the road and she obviously had not eaten for a while as she was too weak to get up and run away. Luckily for the young cub, she was taken to the farm and...

    When Orphan Cheetahs Run Wild
    By - Liz Georges - Communications Manager
    Although the Cheetah Conservation Fund is currently home to 45 captive cheetahs, our organisation’s mainfocus is not keeping cheetahs in captivity. That said,when a cheetah is orphaned at a very young age, thereare no other alternatives except captivity. These cheetahs would be unable to care for themselves and learn...

    Wild Mum
    By - Beth Fellenstein - Constituent Relations Manager
    CCF has worked for two decades to teach farmers to coexist with cheetahs—and those efforts are paying dividends. A while back a livestock farmer became alarmed by the presence of a cheetah we later dubbed Wild Mumand her two cubs near his livestock kraal. Rather than killing them on site, the farmer trapped them and...

    CCF's orphaned cheetahs
    By - Allison Rogers - Grants Manager
    Currently, CCF has 52 cheetahs that were either orphaned or injured and came to CCF to be cared for. That number is slightly down from a year or two ago due to CCF's "rewilding" program. We developed a very successful protocol that allows cheetahs that have been in captivity to relearn to hunt and protect themselves in a...

    By - Allison Rogers - Grants Manager

    Next Four Captive Cheetahs To Be Rewilded?
    By - Allison Rogers and CCF Keeper Matt - Grants Manager
    Recently, when CCF’s keepers arrived at the pen of the Four Scientists (a group of four male cheetahs named Darwin, Fossey, Livingstone and Mendel) for their daily feeding, the cats were nowhere to be seen. This was HIGHLY unusual as the eager Scientists always are waiting at the gate for the feeding truck...

    Four out, four in
    By - Allison Rogers - Grants Manager
    On the same day that four formerly captive cheetahs were soft-released into CCF's game park to determine if they can learn to hunt, CCF took possession of four 2-month-old cubs. The cubs arrived in a beat-up cage; they were filthy and terrified. Cubs that young still need intensive care, and these quickly blossomed at CCF....

    More CCF cheetahs readied to return to the wild
    By - Allison Rogers - Grants manager
    After CCF's successful "rewilding" of seven captive cheetahs in Namibia in 2008/2009, we're ready to do it again. Recently four long-time cheetah residents at CCF--all female--were radio-collared and released into CCF's 4,000-hectare Bellebenno game camp. The camp is fenced but has plenty of prey for the cheetahs to hunt....

Before reintroduction, they were housed in a large enclosure with plenty of prey species. Then they were released into the NamibRand Nature Reserve and...

    CCF's Orphan Cheetahs
    By - Patricia Tricorache - Asst. Director, International Programs
    A highlight in 2008 involved the re-introduction of five of CCF's cheetahs into the NamibRand Nature Reserve in the southwest of Namibia, where, when it was farmland, cheetahs had been eradicated in previous decades. These five males had been in captivity long enough that they had to relearn to hunt and kill. It took...
