Cheetah Outreach Programme



General Information

The fastest mammal on earth reaching a speed of 100km/h, taking a whopping four 9meter long strides per second, that is some serious stats to consider when looking at the Cheetah. And with the Sub-Saharan Cheetahs iconic tear lines down their faces, sleek aerodynamic body shape and big eyes, this beautiful creature is currently in Vulnerable status due to many factors causing their decline in numbers. This is where the Cheetah Outreach Programme came to the ‘rescue’ and started breeding the Anatolian Shepard Dog which are given to farmers to protect the livestock against this non-confrontational animal. This programme has also urged livestock farmers to stop laying traps or poison and in turn saved many other predatory species like the Caracal, Serval Cat, Jackal and Bat Eared Fox from suffering the same fate. Join the team at Cheetah Outreach and learn more about these amazing animals. Certain times of the year, Cheetah cubs are also available for encounters.
