AfriCat Foundation Charity Profile
The AfriCat Foundation was founded in 1991 and officially registered as a non-profit organisation in August 1993. AfriCat has grown significantly since then and what started out primarily as an animal welfare organisation has over the years, identified the need to include a focus on education and research as being essential to our mission – the long-term conservation of large carnivores in Namibia.
The AfriCat Foundation concentrates on four objectives in working towards its mission to create awareness and promote the tolerance of large carnivores among the farming community by assisting farmers in effective farm management techniques, including targeting problem predators as opposed to indiscriminate removal; to educate youth about large carnivores and environmental awareness; to research large carnivores, particularly cheetahs and leopards, on farmland and in captivity; to provide humane housing, treatment and care for orphaned and injured animals.
