Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), being the fastest mammal on earth (it can develop an up to 110 km/hour speed limit), is by far the best hunter among the African big cats. Its successful attempts are mostly due to cheetah ’s approaching the prey hidden and certainly due to its unrivalled speed.
Cheetahs are included on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) list of vulnerable species. Approximately 12,400 cheetahs remain in the wild in twenty-five African countries; Namibia has the most, with about 2,500. Another fifty to sixty critically endangered Asiatic cheetahs are thought to remain in Iran.

Founded in Namibia in 1990, the Cheetah Conservation Fund’s mission is to be the world’s resource charged with protecting the cheetah and to ensure its future. The organization works with all stakeholders within the cheetah’s ecosystem to develop best practices in research, education and ecology and create a sustainable model from which all other species, including people, will benefit.
