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.

CCB engage the community through working with farmers, many of whom see cheetahs as pests and a threat to their livestock. CCB aids farmers through site visits, community workshops, a livestock guarding dog programme and the distribution of educational materials. Aim is to close the knowledge gap whereby farmers can identify their own predator problems and be able to implement inexpensive predator control. 

In addition, they also run education programmes with the aim of spreading the word of conservation throughout Botswana in an attempt to improve knowledge of the environment and predators as well as improving perceptions of vulnerable species and the role that they play in the ecosystem as a national resource.
