With CCF, she has developed a holistic approach to the cheetahs conservation and survival that involves programs ranging from education of farmers to care for their livestock and implement predator-friendly livestock management, to habitat restoration by processing encroaching bush into Bushblok, a low-emission, compact log for cooking, to development of the best practices for storing cheetah sperm and blood samples in the Genome Research Bank to provide “insurance” for the cheetah’s survival.
