Mara-Meru Cheetah Project will be carried out with the sponsorship money. Financial statements will be reflected on the special page with the amounts and types of work carried out on the funds provided. In addition, in the process we will regularly post on the site news on Mara and Meru cheetahs. You can follow the life of these wonderful cats, and even take part in their lives. You have a unique opportunity to patronize any Mara or Meru cheetah you like.

Adopt a Cheetah: Any contribution of U.S. $ 500 or more will receive a (10" by 12") portrait of any Mara or Meru cheetah selected from this web site. The portrait will be painted for you by Elena Chelysheva. At the request of the custodian of a cheetah his or her name will be reflected on our website.

We will appreciate you support with photo pictures of cheetahs taken in Masai-Mara National Reserve or Meru and Kora National Parks and Bisanadi National Reserve. You can send pictures and comments to Dr. Elena Chelysheva: Chelysheva.elena(at)
