As Founder and Executive Director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) since 1990, Dr. Laurie Marker pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation, and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that had never before been possible. She is recognised as one of the world’s leading cheetah experts. She conducted ground-breaking research on the re-introduction of captive-born cheetahs into the wild. It was at this time that she learned about the conflict between livestock farmers and cheetahs.In 1990, Laurie founded her international non-profit organisation and set up its headquarters in Namibia in 1991. From humble beginnings in a tiny farmhouse in rural Namibia to an unparalleled conservation model for predator conservation, Laurie has built a world-renowned organisation.
Laurie’s tireless work to unite a nation, continent, and the world in the effort to save the cheetah is impressive.Laurie chairs the Conservancy Association of Namibia (CANAM). She has learned that with improved livestock and wildlife management techniques, cheetahs, people and livestock can peacefully co-exist.
Laurie has received many international awards for her work in cheetah conservation. In 2000 she was recognised as one of Time Magazine’s Heroes for the Planet and in 2008 was presented with the Gold Medal Award from the Society of Women Geographers. She also received the Conservation Medal of Lifetime Achievement Award from the Zoological Society of San Diego, was the Intel Environmental Prize Laureate of the 2008 Tech Award, a nominee for the 2008 and 2010 Indianapolis Prize, the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Wildlife Film Festival, and the 2010 Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement.

Since his ranger service at Raccoon Creek he has been an advocate for their re-establishment.
Join us with Jay and special guest Fay Cunningham, an alum of the original CCC, as we discuss the revitalization effort of the Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and what it involves and how you can contact your Representatives to get them to cosponsor “HR188 - The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act” which is sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. HR188 is a job creation program that re-establishes a Civilian Conservation Corp that puts to work unemployed and underemployed civilians to advance useful public works projects aimed at safeguarding natural resources and developing new transportation and infrastructure.

You've all seen the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue Group and the problem at the Wabashiki Welands talked about on Facebook. On this episode of HTR you will find out exactly how big the problem is and what you can do to help.
Dozens of turtles are being run over on highway 40/150 along the Wabashiki protected wetlands at West Terre Haute Indiana. Here are plans for a system of culverts under the highway designed to give the turtles safe passage that was drafted by engineering students at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology:https://www.facebook.com/download/822434907791390/Rose%20Turtle%20Proposal.pdf
The Indiana Department of Transportation turned these plans down. The Indiana Department of Transportation can be contacted at: http://www.in.gov/indot/2330.htm
