The Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) welcomed a group of 11 young women from the Girl Scouts of the United States and three Girl Guides from South Africa at its Centre this summer.
The visit was the second half of a two-part, two-nation, immersive conservation learning experience, “Voice of the Cheetah,” that began in Washington, D.C. and ended in Namibia as part of a Girl Scout Destination event.
In all, the group spent 10 days in Namibia, visiting Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast, the Namib-Naukluft National Park, and Etosha National Park, in addition to CCF. The group was led by Lesley Robinson, VP of Girl Leadership Experience (GSLE), Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina, and sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina.
Sarah Hall, (pictured on the far right), is a Girl Scout from Santa Cruz County. She was one of the 11 girls who participated in this Destination event in DC and Africa.
“The trip was really fun and exciting, especially getting to see all the girls again,” said Sarah. “We learned lots of wildlife species and jobs in conservation!”
