About Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada

Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada is a registered charity in Canada that has partnered directly with Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) in Namibia. CCF was founded in 1990 by Dr. Laurie Marker, a world-renowned conservationist and cheetah expert. In addition to being the first and longest-running organization dedicated to saving the cheetah,  CCF has built a holistic organisation founded on research, conservation and community engagement and has demonstrated results.   We selected CCF as a partner, given their track record and their commitment to sharing best practices with other conservation organisations.

Our Vision Statement

To be a key financial contributor to CCF by representing the voice of the cheetah conservation in Canada in order to ensure the cheetah’s continued survival now and into the future.

Our Purpose

To help ensure the future of wild cheetahs in their natural habitat, by raising awareness and donor support from the Canadian public, educational institutions, industry partners, foundations and NGOs.  

Through an agent agreement with CCF, we are working together to advance and support their integrated programs of research, conservation, educational programs and community development. We focus on these programs. We thank our key supporters for their continued involvement and sponsorship.

Our Board

Our Board Members participate on a voluntary basis, bringing strengths in strategic marketing and communications, financial management, business development and sustainable technologies, as well as knowledge of environmental and biodiversity issues and international development concerns. 

Our Status

Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada is an independent, registered charity in Canada, with accountability to the Canadian government and to our supporters, donors and partners within Canada.  

First established in 2004, Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada was reconstituted in 2013 under the new Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act with a new board and a renewed commitment to the cause.
