Save the Cheetahs

Dr. Laurie Marker joins us to talk about one of the world's most beautiful animals that is in danger.  She is Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) based in Namibia, Africa. Having worked with cheetahs since 1974, Laurie set up the not-for profit Cheetah Conservation Fund in 1990, moving to Namibia to develop a permanent conservation research Centre for the wild cheetah.  For more information about the Cheetah Conservation Fund and Dr. Laurie Marker visit her website.
