Commitment by

Cheetah Conservation Fund

In 2012, Cheetah Conservation Fund committed to increasing their efforts to tackle bush encroachment in Namibia and develop a biomass industry, thereby protecting the bush/veld ecosystem, creating jobs, and providing clean energy. Cheetah Conservation fund will purchase new harvest equipment, re-tool the biomass factory, train new factory employees and local farmers, and streamline the production process of biomass from the thornbush. The goal is to restore the habitat of the bushland, increase available grazing lands and stimulate the biomass industry in Namibia.
