The fastest land animal is losing its footing on our planet. The spotted sprinter roaming the plains of Africa is coming into conflict with humans because of decrease in its habitat and prey. When prey is scarce, the cheetah goes after livestock. In an attempt to protect their livestock and their livelihoods, the farmers are killing cheetahs.
Cheetah Conservation Fund, a leading conservation organization in Namibia, is fighting to save the endangered cheetah. With innovative programs like the Livestock Guard Dog program where dogs guard farm animals against cheetah encounters, CCF is ensuring the cheetah has a fighting chance at survival.
