Public education and the development of an active grassroots constituency are integral components of CCF's overall cheetah conservation programme. CCF educates farmers, teachers and the public about the need and methods to conserve Namibia's rich biodiversity and the role of the cheetah and other predators in healthy ecosystems. Public education and the development of national pride in the cheetah are critical to its survival.
Organised education programmes at CCF are designed mainly for groups accommodated at CCF’s tented Camp Lightfoot. CCF hosts school and community groups, exposing them to different environmental education activities including a Nature Trail, team building activities, games and other environmental awareness activities. Groups usually spend two nights with CCF. All participants are exposed to CCF research and conservation efforts by presentations and to the Namibian farmland ecosystem through the nature trail and a game drive through CCF’s Little Serengeti. Team-building activities are designed to highlight the importance of team efforts in conservation. Role-play and drama are also included in the programme and include scenarios of livestock and predator management. Your gift of $100 can feed and house four school students for the CCF Young Conservationist camp.
