Born to Explore Namibia: Land of the Cheetah

In this one-hour special, Born to Explore travels to Namibia for an in-depth look at the most endangered cat in Africa---the cheetah.  Richard Wiese discovers why Namibia is known as the cheetah capital of the world. He meets Dr. Laurie Marker, founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) to see what’s being done to save these cats from extinction.  Loss of habitat, human-wildlife conflict and the illegal wildlife trade have impacted cheetah populations  worldwide and there are now less than 8000 left in the wild. 

It’s the cheetah’s race for survival on Born to Explore. 

Over the years, Born to Explore has helped to raise over $150,000 to support the efforts of Dr. Laurie Marker and CCF to save cheetahs throughout Africa.
