Cheetah Conservation Botswana, Gaborone, Botswana

Cheetah Conservation Botswana (CCB) conduct scientific research into cheetah distribution, habitat preference, prey preference, behaviour, genetics and diseases.

Their aim is to conserve, and to try and understand the animals better and eventually promote an environment where humans and cheetahs, and livestock can live harmoniously.


 At present, they are running 4 broad programmes:

  • Scientific Research – where they are monitoring and collecting data on cheetah populations, and on carnivore conflict, specifically with livestock.
  • Farming for Conservation – working with local farmers to provide information and support them in improving their livelihoods whilst protecting the cheetah population, training them in using domestic guard dogs to protect their livestock, and offers workshops and training on conflict mitigation and reduction.
  • Communities for Conservation – working with communities to explore and pilot small scale businesses as alternate sources of income.
  • Education & Awareness – facilitating immersive workshops for schoolchildren ad teachers.
