Namibia has the largest remaining population of cheetah anywhere in the world, with 25% of all cheetahs living within its borders. Of these 90% live on farmlands, where they come into conflict with farmers and their livestock on a daily basis. During the 1980’s and 90’s between 600 -1000 cheetahs were destroyed on an annual basis by farmers and hunters, today that number has been reduced.
The three pillars of conservation, namely ministry, private sector and non-government organisations have joined forces to work together, to increase awareness of the plight of the cheetah and to find solutions to the conflicting interests of farmer and predator.
