This is the first of a series with staff, interns and volunteers at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. I first interviewed Founder and Director of CCF, Dr. Laurie Marker outside her office at CCF where we enjoyed a mix of a beautiful sunset on the Waterberg Plateau and an incoming thunderstorm. After the interview I was able to record the purring of the four cheetah ambassadors, Peter, Tiger Lily, Kayjay and Senay, so please stick around to end to hear their happiness.

Here are some links to follow for more information on the Cheetah Conservation Fund:
