Fundraiser for Cheetah Conservation Fund
Join us for a VERY special event on Friday, October 28, for a fundraiser for the Cheetah Conservation Fund and a special presentation by its Founder and Executive Director, Dr. Laurie Marker.
Based in Namibia, the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is a renowned leader in the conservation of this magnificent animal. CCF’s approach to conservation encompasses multiple activites:
- Reintroduction of cheetahs into India 50 years after they were last seen there
- Working on an international level with countries like Somaliland to establish a new cheetah conservation and rehabilitation center for cheetahs rescued from the illegal pet trade
- Providing guard dogs to farmers to keep cheetahs away from their livestock, thus lessening the tension between farmers and cheetahs
- Continuing education programs for local children about why conservation is important
Dr. Laurie Marker will discuss the work CCF is doing in Namibia and Somaliland, and the reintroduction of cheetahs in the Kuno National Park in India. This promises to be a very exciting evening and an incredible opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading conservationists.
Attendees also have the opportunity to explore the 5-acres of Wild Wonders and meet some of the 100+ animal ambassadors that call Wild Wonders their forever home.
A barbecue buffet will be available, along with gifts to purchase from CCF.
Tickets are $125/person. A small number of VIP tickets are available at $250/person. VIP tickets include a meeting with Dr. Marker, a cheetah presentation, and separate dining area.
The start time of the event is 4:00 for general admission and 3:30 for VIPs.
