Cheetah Preservation Foundation NPC
Our mission: “To promote and fund the conservation of cheetah and other endangered species through captive breeding, research and public awareness.”
The Cheetah - one of the world’s most fascinating and beautiful cats, is in danger. Highly specialised, the cheetah is the fastest land animal on earth, achieving an incredible top speed of 120 kilometers per hour. Sadly, this ability which is used for hunting has placed the cheetah in direct conflict with man. In order to achieve these high speeds, the cheetah requires open flat land – the same land man requires for agriculture. This loss of habitat, linked to low reproductive success caused by poor gene diversity, has reduced cheetah numbers to less than 7100 worldwide.
The Cheetah Preservation Foundation was founded in 1988, with the principal aim of ensuring the survival of the cheetah and other endangered species, as well as educating our visitors about the plight of the these animals. The Cheetah Preservation Foundation also gives our visitors the opportunity to become pro-active in the conservation of endangered species, by joining as members and thereby contributing financially to our various conservation projects.
Celebrating our Corporate Members :
We thank you for your support!
Adopt a Hero!
We strive toward giving our animals the best possible care - but being privately owned with no grants, our adopters are the actual people who make it possible for us to take care of each individual animal. Any animal on the ranch is eligible for a care taking adopter, from our Critically endangered Ring-Tailed lemur, to our magnificent and classified as Vulnerable Cheetahs.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
