Cheetah intelligence

The Cheetah Conservation Fund’s (CCF) Education Officer, Gebhardt Nikanor (right), conducted educational programmes at schools throughout Swakopmund and Walvis Bay this week. CCF conducts outreach programmes annually throughout the country targeting 5th to 7th grade learners.  Nikanor, has been conducting CCF’s educational programmes for over 12 years. “Returning to these schools where I have developed relationships with the teachers and the learners has provided a strong basis for on-going environmental education. I want each of the learners to have a deep appreciation for all of Namibia’s wildlife species,” said Nikanor, “The cheetah is a great umbrella species that they can relate to and learn more about its challenges for survival and how they can be a part of its survival and the ecosystem in which it lives.”
