Congratulations to Dr. Laurie Marker and the Cheetah Conservation Fund for 20+ great years of helping save the wild cheetah!
To see a world in which cheetahs live and flourish in co-existance with people and the environment.
To be the world’s resource charged with protecting the cheetah and
ultimately ensuring its future on our planet. CCF will work with all
stakeholders within the cheetah’s ecosystem to develop best practices in
research, education and ecology and create a sustainable model from
which all other species, including people, will benefit.
Cameron meets Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder of Cheetah Conservation Fund
Cameron and Dr. Laurie Marker, February 2008
I had a great time!
was fun to meet Dr. Marker she was really nice and friendly. She showed
me pictures of the cheetahs Ron, Little C, Kanini, and a lot of other
things. She travels a lot but she has a house in Africa and has
lived there for 18 years.
She told me that kids are the future people that will help save
the cheetah. That makes me want to do more to get kids educated about saving cheetahs. I appreciated that she took the time to meet me and I hope to meet her again. - Cameron
Dr. Laurie Marker sent an email to Cameron wishing him luck on race day and attached two photos of Namibian kids which she said wished him luck on the race also.
