“Run for the Cheetah help protect their rights to live free”

As regal as the mama cheetah appears, she is somewhat at a loss to defend her cubs from the other predators like the lions and tigers or even the jackals.

This cheetah is built for speed, but poorly equipped for defense because she has small teeth and a weak jaw. She can not compete against the more aggressive predators.

For 18 months, mothers must raise their cubs from tiny, helpless creatures – only ten ounces in weight and less than 12 inches long into grown animals capable of taking care of themselves.

Her devotion and tenderness is seen in the picture above, but when the cubs are grown, she will leave them one day while they sleep to fend for themselves.

Help the cheetah to raise her cubs in the protected African homelands under the protection of the Cheetah Conservation Fund.

Will you run or walk for the Cheetah?
Time is running away from them.

    Everyone does something to protect them. Explain more how they are in danger.
