What is the Keep Safe Project?

Our Mission:  Inspired by the good work of Dr. Laurie Marker and  the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF),  the KeepSafe Project was established to raise awareness of the crisis facing endangered animal species and the loss of their habitat, and to actively support animal conservation organizations worldwide.   

Recognizing the importance of education in any effort of this magnitude, KeepSafe engages public and private schools to  encourage the active participation of the future generations in supporting animal conservation efforts.  We are working closely with the Trevor Zoo in our educational and fundraising endeavors.   The Trevor Zoo is a unique institution established at the Millbrook School in Millbrook, NY, and is the home of seven endangered animals.

What about the Boxes?

We have chosen to use wooden “keepsake” boxes,  called "KeepSafe" boxes, as a symbol of the KeepSafe Project mission. We engaged accomplished artists to donate their talents and their imagination to transform these boxes into unique works of art. The KeepSafe boxes are silent auctioned at our fund-raising events.

How can you help?

Dr. Laurie Marker and noted wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas have teamed up to bring you the most intimate portrait yet of the world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah in their upcoming book, “A Future For Cheetahs

From the “Scientists in the Field Series”  Chasing Cheetahs: The Race to Save Africa's Fastest Cat (Scientists in the Field Series)
