Our Reason for Being


Cheetah Conservation Fund Canada is a registered charity in Canada. We are dedicated to raising the awareness amongst Canadians about the threats facing the cheetah, and what it will take to save this endangered species from extinction. We want Canadians to understand that cheetahs are a vital part of our planet’s ecosystems, and the web of life. Our education and communication efforts focus on how people are working together to save the cheetah, and encouraging Canadians to continue to support an important part of a growing global movement to protect the world’s endangered species.
