The cheetah is currently listed as Vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Vulnerable status means that the cheetah is on its way to becoming Endangered unless the factors that threaten its survival and reproduction are stopped. Cheetah Conservation Fund has stabilized the cheetah population in Namibia but across its range populations are still on the decline. There are currently less than 8,000 cheetahs left in the wild. Now is the time for action and we need your help.
The outlook for the cheetah may seem bleak but vulnerable status also means there's still hope for survival. We have not yet passed the point of no return, meaning there are still enough animals remaining in the wild to turn the population around. We can help make the necessary changes to increase usable habitat, stop human/wildlife conflict and help educate the future conservationists of Africa who will one day take over CCF’s important mission. Today on Endangered Species Day, please make a donation to CCF so that we can continue our work toward saving the cheetah in the wild.
