Slinky, feline, elegant, graceful, stealthy – all words to describe the lithe form of a cheetah, the fastest land animal on earth.
Unfortunately, this gorgeous cat is in trouble. Experiencing large population declines over the past two decades, there are fewer than 8,000 cheetahs remaining in the wild.
On top of all the natural threats to the cheetah - competition with lions, leopards and hyenas, high mortality rate in cubs, low genetic diversity - they are having to cope with the challenges that we create. Humans are continually encroaching on wild space, reducing the available habitat that cheetahs can live in, cubs are stolen for the illegal exotic pet trade, individuals are hunted. The dispersal of domestic cats with human expansion may also be spreading infectious diseases to cheetahs.
All of these factors are pushing the cheetah inexorably towards the brink of extinction.
