Living With Cheetahs

Program Overview

Living with Cheetahs

The Living with Cheetahs Project is the Only Facility in the World Breeding with Cheetah for the Sole Purpose of Reintroduction into Suitable Protected Reserves.

With less than 7500 cheetahs left worldwide (less than 600 wild cheetahs left in RSA) the urgency to repopulate the dwindling numbers has become apparent. This is the driving force behind this project. Breeding cheetah for the sole purpose of reintroduction we strive to return the population of Africa’s most endangered large mammal, the cheetah back to a self-sustaining number of individuals. By using our rewilding training regime and post release monitoring efforts we ensure the ultimate survival rate for these cats. Research and education play a huge role in future reintroduction objectives and these points are focused on at the centre.

This project gives volunteers the opportunity to work with these magnificent animals while contributing to real conservation efforts to save the cheetah from going extinct in the wild. Your involvement and help will assist us to ensure the survival of the species for generations to come.
