Save the Cheetah from Extinction

The endangered cheetah is a protected species in Namibia, but people are allowed to remove cheetahs if they pose a threat to livestock or human life. Unfortunately, some farmers will capture cheetahs indiscriminately, often removing or killing those that have not taken any livestock.

International trade in live animals and skins is permitted from Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. Illegal trade in other parts of Africa and indiscriminate capture and removal in southern Africa continue to threaten the survival of this species. Habitat loss is also putting the cheetahs at risk. Please sign this petition to help save the cheetah from extinction!
