The Cheetah Project started on February 1st 2021 at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya with initial scouting and trap camera setup.  Today, the project has expnded to two conservancies - Ol Pejeta and Loisaba. Team members from thirteen different countries participate in a scientific role in identifying cheetahs, naming them, documenting behavior patterns, and defining territory.

 

We have had team members from the following countries: Australia, Sri Lanka, India, Canada, England, Kenya, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. 

 

 

Please upload cheetah photos and information only taken at loisaba Conservancy, Mugie Conservancy, and Suyian Conservancy, Kenya.  We do not accept photos taken elsewhere.

SOME IMPORTANT FACTS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW - PLEASE READ!

1. The Cheetah Project is not a profit making venture.  What we charge you goes towards the cost of accommodation, meals, ground transportation, airport pickups and drop-offs, diesel for patrol vehicles, vehicle maintenance,  Driver salaries and meals, equipment, office expenses. In fact, it costs us more than what you pay.

2. This is not a "work program" and we do not get you to do laborious tasks such as erecting fences, hauling dirt, picking up animal poop, and repairing buildings.

3. We do not get you to cook your own meals.  Our meals are provided by a cook and kitchen helpers who provide three healthy meals a day.

4. Accommodation is provided in a private room or a shared tent that has a comfortable bed with linen, desk, chair, and plug point.  You do not have to share your room (unless you want to) or sleep in a dormitory.  Your room will be cleaned by housekeeping staff, and your bed will be made up whenever requested.

5. You will be fully trained prior to arriving in Kenya on the identification of cheetahs, and have to pass a qualifying exam.  There are also regular refresher courses that you are required to participate in if your arrival date is more than 3 months away.  Once selected, your skills are tested by getting you to identify, match, and confirm cheetah images from Ol Pejeta.  ALL TEAM MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN A MINIMUM OF 70% OF IDENTIFICATION ASSIGNMENTS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL IN KENYA.

6. We are an All-Volunteer organization from the CEO down.  This means that we have no salaries to pay, and all money that comes in goes back 100% into the project.
