Young Canadians

There are young people in every part of Canada who have a huge passion for the cheetah and who have come up with some super ways to share their knowledge about the cheetah and its threats with friends, family and schoolmates.

Learning about Cheetahs – Right Here in Canada


Although cheetahs are not indigenous to Canada, you can see cheetahs up-close in several wildlife conservation venues. Two accredited facilities in Canada – Toronto Zoo and Parc Safari in Hemmingford, Quebec – provide professionally-led and safe viewing of the cheetah.  They are also working collaboratively with us to educate the public about cheetahs and the threats facing them.

Helping Cheetahs


Kids have created some great ways of helping the cheetah, by spreading the word about them and by raising funds that go directly to help the cheetahs at CCF Namibia.

See our Educational Resources Section below for additional background materials, website links, and visuals for all levels.


ids as young as six years old are sharing their knowledge with their friends and classmates in organized events in schools. Of course, we also have young people well into their teens who are just as committed.

Here are just a few examples of our young cheetah enthusiasts focusing on cheetahs in their schools, in science, environmental studies and global sustainable development.
