How We Help Save Them
- We protect wild cheetahs by providing support for a program in Tanzania that trains domestic dogs to guard local community livestock protecting them from wild cheetahs and other predators.
- We provide support for wildlife camera traps set up for 16 villages to watch over wildlife. 32 local community members monitor these cameras to protect wild cheetahs and other wildlife.
