The Cheetah Conservation Fund is the world’s leading organization dedicated to saving the cheetah in the wild. Founded by Dr. Laurie Marker in 1990, CCF has created a set of integrated programs aimed at addressing the principle threats to the cheetah, which are human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss, loss of prey and illegal wildlife trafficking.

 
 

The Tikki Hywood Foundation, founded by Lisa Hywood in 1994 in memory of her late father Tikki Hywood,  strives to bring awareness and sound conservation practices to the plight of lesser known and endangered animals, such as the Pangolin, the most illegally trafficked mammal in the world. THF aims to increase a greater understanding of the conservation tool that is legislation and is constantly seeking ways of improving and upholding the laws that protect fauna and flora.

EXTRAORDINARY CONSERVATIONISTS

The Extraordinary Conservationists Panotriptychs feature incredible individuals and their teams fighting for the protection and survival of endangered species.

The Panotriptych images were created in close coordination with five Extraordinary Conservationists in July 2017 in Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa .

The Rhino Pride Foundation, founded by specialist wildlife veterinarian Dr. Jana Pretorius in 2015, tackles the devastating rhino poaching crisis head-on with a pre-emptive approach. Realizing that most anti-poaching solutions focused only on the aftermath of poaching, Dr. Pretorius established the Foundation to implement immediate, practical, ground-level preventative measures that would protect rhinos from poachers effectively and reliably.

 

 The International Anti-Poaching Foundation, founded by Damien Mander in 2009, advocates the use of military equipment and tactics for the training of anti-poaching rangers and the protection of endangered wildlife. High Target Species such as elephant, rhino, tiger and gorilla are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them.

 

The Dyer Island Conservation Trust (DICT) was established in 2006 by Wilfred Chivell. The mission of the trust is to Discover, Protect and Educate, as well as celebrate the amazing marine bio-diversity of the Overstrand area. 

The African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary (APSS), a project of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust, opened in 2015. This state of the art, rehabilitation centre, provides temporary care to local marine avian species, with a special focus on the endangered African penguin.
