Cheetah Conservation Botswana
Cheetah Conservation Botswana aims to preserve the nation’s cheetah population through scientific research, community outreach and environmental education, working with rural communities to promote coexistence with Botswana’s rich diversity of carnivore species.
Botswana hosts the world’s largest population of cheetahs, with an estimated population of approximately 1,700 individuals. This accounts for approximately 25% of the world’s remaining wild cheetahs and between us and our neighbors Namibia, we have almost half of the world’s cheetahs. Due to Botswana’s location in the centre of southern Africa, this population is also crucial to facilitate connectivity between the remaining populations of Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola.
