In the CCF, the staff goes game counting every month to keep track of food for cheetahs and make sure that the ecosystem is healthy. They have a big checklist of animals such as predators like jackals, cheetahs; birds like kori bustards, red-chested korhaan; and antelopes such as oryx, steenbok, and kudu.
Saving the Farms
Sometimes, the wild cheetahs attack the farm, because they don't have anything else to eat. Because of this farmers shoot cheetahs when the animals get near the livestock. Laurie knew that this was a big problem for the cheetahs, because lots of them died, so she started talking to farmers. The puppies she offered are raised around sheep and/or goats and taught how to guard them.
