Endangered Species

Cheetah


Cheetah Safari Photo

The cheetah is the fastest land mammal and today is found primarily in the grasslands, savannah and moderate woodlands of Africa. There is a reported almost 50% reduction in cheetah populations over the last 20 years. The causes of this decline include  over-hunting of its main food source, the gazelle, poaching, and habitat destruction. These factors as well as a high cub mortality rate lead to this species endangerment. To compound the issue, cheetahs are very similar genetically which makes captive breeding of cheetahs in zoos extremely difficult as ideal mating conditions are hard to achieve.
