wildlife conservation. The World Wide Fund
for Nature (WWF) will be developing a cheetah

The project will be assisted by the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF),
Namibia, which will also share knowledge on breeding and conservation of
cheetah. Namibia has a population of around 2,500 cheetah's and the topogra-

needed for the survival of cheetah. Once
again, in 1994, the possibility of reintroducing cheetah in Machiya was discussed by the WWF experts. In the following year CCF director Laurie Marker
