SOME IMPORTANT FACTS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

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, and office expenses. In fact, it costs us much more than what you pay, and the remaining amount is subsidized by our sponsors and well wishers.

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 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.

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.
