Since 2006 the Naankuse Foundation has been conserving vulnerable land, cultures and wildlife of Namibia and rescue species threatened by an ever shrinking habitat. Mitigating human-wildlife conflict is the main driving force behind most of the research at all sites. 

Working from different sites enables the team to study the behaviour of cheetah in various stages of captivity and human interaction. The Naankuse main site operates a successful wildlife sanctuary, which is home to several captive cheetah. The Kanaan Desert Retreat has established a 7 hectare enclosure for 5 rescued cheetah, who can roam quite freely, but are provided with food and who are qute habituated to human presence. All three research sites, Naankuse, Kanaan and Neuras, are also surrounded byt land where wild cheetah who have made the region their natural territory are frequently sighted.
