Feed Orphan Cheetahs in Namibia

Reintroduced cheetahs thriving

In late 2008, five captive male cheetahs were reintroduced into a wild area of Namibia where cheetahs. The males were chosen because they had shown the inclination 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 fed daily until they consistently made their own kills. As they were collared, CCF has been able to follow their movement. All five are doing very well. Two captive females were released later. One has since given birth. And a wild female with nearly grown cubs also was released into the area. Now that CCF has developed a successful protocol for "rewilding" cheetahs, perhaps more of CCF's orphans can make their way back into the wild. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
