There are so many ways for everybody to get involved, whether you are in Bloemfontein, or further afield in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Tokyo or London everyone can help. The easiest thing you can is post a comment below, your encouragement, thought and prayers go a long way to helping us through our day. Please remember to post your name and city too! Then once you have comment next on your list is to tell everybody you know about this website, here they can not only learn more about what we do, but visit regularly to read our diary updates, keep up with the animals and see the hard work we all put in.
Naturally a program like ours costs a lot of money to run on a daily basis, we rely on the generosity of members of the public, and benefit from no government or NGO funding. To be honest we usually have spent the money we get in today two weeks ago, costs are really high and with the global economic recession most people have adopted a “charity begins at home” stance. Literally NO AMOUNT of money is too small, and every cent is fully utilised and truly appreciated.
Although donating money is one of the simplest things you can do to really help, it is by no means the only way, we have a WISHLIST of things we need some items you may even have lying around the house, you can also plan a trip to Bloemfontein, South Africa and visit us.
We will soon be opening up limited opportunities to people with special interest in “big cats” (veterinary and nature conservation students, animal lovers etc) to come stay and work at Cheetah Experience as a volunteer, the work is no means easy, in fact there is a lot of hard work, but the reward from working so close with such incredible beings is immense.
