This one was not in the wild but is an ambassador cheetah!


At first, I was not sure about the project but after hearing more about it, I changed my mind. Cheetahs are not like other big cats, they are very fast but not good in a fight. Unfortunately they are often killed by people trying to protect their livestock - the outreach project is trying to find ways to help people and protect cheetahs and other wildlife at the same time.
