Friends of Tygerberg Hills free entry, visitors normal gate fee.
The Cheetah Outreach Trust is a non-profit conservation organisation dedicated to the protection of the free-ranging cheetah and the stability of cheetahs held in captivity as an assurance population. The Cheetah Outreach Trust focusses on four key areas:
- Environmental education,
- Reducing wildlife-human
conflict through applied and effective in situ (field-based) strategies,
- Advocating for the elimination of illegal trade using the South African DNA studbook (hosted by Cheetah Outreach) as a monitoring tool for legitimacy of animals traded and research.
- Conserving the endangered, flagship African predator – the cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus).
More about Dawn: Dawn is the manager at the Cheetah Outreach in Somerset West. She has been with the programme for 25 years, since its initiation when she started off as a volunteer.
