I recently updated my profile to add the Cheetah Conservation Fund to my list of interests and then stumbled over this group and thought I ought to join up.
I was fortunate enough to see a number of cheetahs in the wild last summer and my current userpic is from one of my photographs taken in the Serengeti. They really are beautiful animals and although I must admit to having a slight preference for leopards among the big cats, cheetahs are a very close second.
Back to the CCF however. I don't know if you are aware, but there are many opportunities to volunteer with the CCF via the charity Earthwatch. I've signed up to go out to Namibia and work at CCF headquarters for a fortnight this November. If I get the chance then I'll be updating my journal while out there - you are most welcome to have a read when the time comes. If I don't have Internet access then I'll post pictures when I get back.
