WHAT IS CHEETA

Community Help Enviro-Education Through Animals

CHEETA is the education division of The Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre. We believe that education is a vital part of the conservation process, and visits are made to various schools and organisations in different parts of the country. Schools can visit The Ann van Dyk Cheetah centre for informative tours and fun activities

In 2003 the Centre launched its Outreach Education Programme, using the cheetah as a symbol of survival and sustainability to teach young people how to overcome challenges and to be catalysts in their communities for the preservation of natural resources and the improvement of their own lives. This project has touched the lives of over 100 000 learners since its start.

In 2010 CHEETA was registered as a Section 18A Non Profit Organisation and works extensively in underprivileged communities.

CHEETA offers the following programmes: cheetah challenge (Outreach), corporate & school visits, tours at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre and school holiday programmes.

Have our education team visit your school or organisation

CHEETA offers a Cheetah Presentation with a cheetah ambassador, or a wild dog and vulture presentation accompanied by an Egyptian Vulture and Anatolian.

Because many communities are not well exposed to domestic animals, CHEETA also offers an outreach programme in impoverished communities to help better the understanding of how to look after and love domestic animals.
