CCF Founder Speaking at Denver Zoo

CCF trains dogs to protect wildlife

Running Wild race beneficiary Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) started their extremely successful Livestock Guardian Dog program 25 years ago to help mitigate human/wildlife conflict. Among CCF’s most notable work is their program that trains dogs to help to protect livestock from predators such as cheetah in Namibia.

On March 29th, Dr. Laurie Marker, Director and Founder of CCF, will celebrate the anniversary of their Livestock Guardian Dog program and present at The Denver Zoo. Guests will learn more about CCF’s work, their various innovative programs and how they give back to local communities in Namibia. You will also have the chance to donate to further their mission, should you choose to. The event itself is free, but registration is required. Register here.

If you can’t make the event, be sure to register for this year’s Running Wild Race, which also benefits the Cheetah Conservation Fund. Hope to see you at Denver Zoo on March 29th and at Regis University on June 22nd!
