Research areas cover:
- Ecology of cheetah in the area, including density, feeding, and group size
- Home range requirements and migratory behaviors
- Overall health, reproduction and genetic makeup of the population
- Strategies to improve the status of cheetahs through changing farmers' attitudes by encouraging sound livestock, wildlife, and land management practices to reduce conflict for the species
- Specific strategies to improve the status of the cheetah through the use of non-lethal predator control methods, specifically the use of livestock guarding dogs
- Ongoing habitat research and bio-diversity studies
This research and information is then shared with the public as a whole through CCF local and international education programs. CCF also endeavors to bring global awareness to the plight of the cheetah by developing links with other organizations and individuals.
