The Jackson Zoo will be hosting a free lecture

Jackson, Miss.— The Jackson Zoo will be hosting a free lecture from conservationist Brian Badger from Cheetah Conservation Fund on Sunday, Feb. 7 at 1:00 p.m.  
Cheetah Conservation Fund’s Brian Badger will be speaking about CCF’s work with cheetahs in Namibia. Thanks to the Jackson Zoo Conservation Committee & AAZK the Jackson Chapter, this opportunity is open to the public and free with zoo admission.
The lecture will take place in the Gertrude C. Ford Education Center at the Jackson Zoo. Unfortunately, there will not be a cheetah present, but there will be information about cheetahs and opportunity to ask questions about this species from an international expert.
The Cheetah Conservation Fund is dedicated to saving the cheetah species in the wild. The organization was founded in 1990, by Dr. Laurie Marker and has since established programs to help address threats to cheetahs in the wild. Brian Badger has been with CCF since 2012, and holds a wealth of knowledge about cheetahs, specifically in Namibia.
The Jackson Zoo encourages all interested guests to visit Sunday, Feb. 7 for this special presentation. For more information on Cheetah Conservation Fund visit:
