End of Year Campaign 2012
A Special Message from Jeff Corwin
I am writing to you today to encourage you to give generously to CCF. Right now, a group of special donors has provided a challenge grant that will match your contribution dollar for dollar, meaning we can go farther and faster in our race to save the cheetah.
I first went to Namibia to meet Dr. Laurie Marker over a decade ago,when I was filming for Animal Planet, and then again a couple of years ago when I highlighted CCF in my book and TV program “100 Heartbeats.”
Each time I see the efforts of Laurie and her team, I’m so impressed with their dedication, and with the fact that CCF’s conservation efforts encompass all aspects of the cheetah’s ecosystem, including humans.
When Dr. Marker asked me to be part of CCF as a U.S. Trustee. I was proud to be given the opportunity to honor her passion and commitment to the cheetah by making my own commitment to CCF.
The cheetah is one of the world’s iconic animals -- it has fascinated us for thousands of years. And without your help, it might very well disappear from our planet. There are fewer than 10,000 cheetahs left in the wild, and they are still under threat from habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict.
Your donation is vital if we want to have even a hope of saving the cheetah. CCF’s range of programming, which includes its highly successful Livestock Guarding Dog program, the award-winning Bushblok project, and a continued dedication to scientific research, needs your support to continue to make a difference for the cheetah.
Please donate today to CCF’s End of Year campaign. Your commitment will be doubled. The race to save the cheetah is on. With your help, we can win it.
Conservationist and CCF-USA Trustee
