Despite their status as the fastest land mammal on earth, cheetah are fast running out of time with an estimated 9000 to 12,000 remaining in the wild. The cheetah once ranged throughout all of Africa and across all of Asia. Today, cheetah are only found in Africa and a few small, isolated pockets of land in Iran.
Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors are working in partnership with the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Trust in South Africa to track and relocate problem cheetah away from local villages. We are proud to assist the efforts of De Wildt’s crucial program in securing the future of this threatened and truly magnificent big cat.
