Hi, I'm Sarah. The cheetahs adventure is in my case a happy coincidence: as a modern languages teacher, I have been contacted by Vicky to translate a text for CCF and, doing that small task, I was immediately intrigued by the subject. The intrigue made room for concern when I discovered that the precarious situation of cheetahs is principally due to a human mistake: miscommunication. The association doesn’t content itself with fixing the damage and pointing at the guilty: it fights for teaching, re-educating, communicating better with the different actors. It is a wonderful solidarity project, in which every link assumes a primary importance and is nothing without the others. We learn together, we build together. And I wanted to be a part of this “together”.
I'm Molly. At a young age, I developed a love for the beauty of Mother Nature. Growing up in Kansas, U.S.A., I was fortunate enough to have a forest for my backyard and I seized every opportunity to go exploring amongst its many treasures. To this day, exploring the wild is still is a passion of mine. I love to travel, and I’m always up for an outdoor adventure, be it scuba-diving amongst sea turtles and sharks, or hiking in bear country. My story with CCF started in 2011 while working for U.N.E.S.C.O in Windhoek, Namibia. While living in Namibia, I had the privilege to meet biologists who worked for CCF Namibia and introduced me to the CCF’s work, and I also experienced first hand the incredible feeling of seeing a cheetah in the Namibian wilderness. I’ll never forget the grace and strength of the cheetah walking across the grassy plains, and it is that beauty that motivates me to work with CCF Belgium.
Hi, my name is Evelyne. I am an IT specialist, but my main interest in real life is the welfare of animals. I have been in love with cats for as long as I can remember. However, it was through TV that I got into contact with my favorite big cat: the Cheetah. Ever since I saw them I promised myself to do all I can to protect, help and love them. The first time I saw cheetahs in the wild was about 3 years ago in Tanzania. It was amazing! I was completely astonished by those spectacular yet fragile animals. It was the best day of my life... until next time I guess. Since this special moment I have been looking for a means to really care for cheetahs. Through CCF I am able to pursue this dream. I am now an active CCF Belgium member and together we can "Race for the Cheetah Survival".

Dhana, one of CCF Belgium’s members is working as an intern at CCF in Namibia. Yesterday she got the chance to go and watch the scat finding dog "Tiger" in action. Scat finding dogs are trained to find cheetah scat so that it can be collected.ed and analysed.
