Did you know that the natural habitat of the Cheetah in the wild has shrunk dramatically all over the world, thus the fastest terrestrial animal on the planet has become a highly endangered species. With about 2,500 animals, Namibia boasts the largest Cheetah Population on earth. In order to protect Cheetah’s in Namibia, the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) was founded in 1990.
