  • HELP US FIND THE CHEETAHS OF ZIMBABWE – As you might know we have recently started Cheetah Conservation Project Zimbabwe. As part of our project we have set up a National Id data base in which we collect sightings and pictures of cheetahs from all over the country. Each cheetah has a unique set of spots that helps us to identify individuals. If we collect enough pictures from an area we are able to give reliable population estimates.  You can help us by sending us your (old) cheetah sightings and pictures. If you have seen this shy spotted cat somewhere in the Zimbabwe bush let us know when and where, how many cheetahs you saw and whether or not they had cubs. Your pictures will be added to the National ID data base. This way you will be able to contribute to the conservation of this beautiful carnivore in Zimbabwe!

Please send your pictures and sightings to cheetah@cheetahzimbabwe.org , if you have too many pictures to send via e-mail let us know so we can come and collect them.  Esther & Hans
