CHEETAH LOCK DOWN DONATIONS

CHEETAH LOCK DOWN DONATIONS

Personal message

We are a Non-Profit Organisation dealing with the conservation and release of Cheetah and Wild Dogs.  We rely solely on our tours for the day to day running of the Centre and the feeding of our animals. Due to the COVID-19 lockdown and no income coming in, this is a very trying time for us.

The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre will be able to carry on looking after the amazing animals that have been entrusted to us.

 

All funds raised will go towards the feeding and health (veterinary) of our animals, as well as to pay our essential staff who are committed and dedicated to our beautiful animals.

CHEETA

CHEETA Logo

The Centre prides itself in its contribution to the conservation and survival of the cheetah species through meticulous breeding (ensuring genetic diversity) and the ability to release captive-born cheetahs as and when suitable space becomes available. It has also played an important role in the academic arena and eighty research publications have been written and undertaken through the facility.
