Save a cheetah

(Thursday, May 21st, 2009)

Sometimes, for endangered species, it becomes necessary to forget re-introduction in the wild, but mere life preservation becomes critical. This is even more important for large carnivores like the cheetah because they need a lot of space and a large quantity of preys asociated to well-developped habits and sophisticated hunting techniques.

Since the cheetahs are also endangered, some of these big cats need to be supported even when they no longer can be freed to the wild world. Here comes the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) that provides protection for injured, old or orphaned cheetahs. About 30 of them.

And you can help them financially, if you are ready to sponsor a cheetah.
