There is no denying the grandeur and mystery of the natural world, and this is in no doubt created by the many incredible animals living out in the wild. Unfortunately, protecting many of those species is difficult, which is why volunteers are so valuable when it comes to conservation efforts. The Cheetah Conservation Project gives willing volunteers the chance to interact with and learn about cheetahs, one of the legendary big cats of Africa. While these beautiful beasts used to roam across all of Africa, cheetahs are now extinct in more than 20 countries, and their numbers have dropped by 90% in the past century.

From Namibia and Botswana to Northern Africa and parts of Iran, cheetahs remain one of the most elusive and fascinating creatures on our planet. However, poaching and habitat encroachment are major issues, which often leave cheetahs injured, abused or orphaned. The Cheetah Conservation Project has a mission of preserving these stunning creatures and ensuring their survival for generations to come. As a volunteer, you can tailor your experience based on your time on the project, giving you an ideal opportunity to work closely with wildlife in serious need of assistance. From feeding and caring for cheetahs in rehabilitation programs to directly contributing to conservation efforts and awareness programs, you can take your love of animals to the next level, and also make your travel more rewarding.

Conservation vacations are growing in popularity, so whether you want to spend a few days or a few months giving your time and energy to these valuable efforts, there is a place for you at the Cheetah Conservation Project. Engaging with these animals in their natural habitat, and implementing strategies to aid conservation efforts is something that you will truly never forget.
