IRANIAN CHEETAH PROJECT

torn paper

THE IRANIAN CHEETAH PROJECT (Panthera, International Wild Cat Conservation)

Status:
Critically Endangered

Cheetahs live in open plains and semi-desert areas in Africa and Asia. They feed on wild antelope, gazelles, sheep and goats. While Asiatic Cheetahs used to range across the Middle East and Central Asia, now they only live in a small area in Iran. The Iranians consider the cheetah an important part of the country's natural and cultural heritage.

Major threats:
There are now only 70-110 Asiatic Cheetahs left in the wild, all occupying the arid, central plateau of Iran. Among the main reasons for the decline of the population are: overhunting of the cheetah's prey, habitat degradation (overgrazing by livestock and severe drought) and poaching (for livestock protection and the pet trade).

Your support will help:

  • research cheetahs, other predators and their prey using camera traps and radio collars.
  • find out how much the cheetah's prey and local rancher's live stock compete for the same land.
  • work with local communities, conservation organizations and government to protect cheetah habitat.

Project Location:
Central Plateau of Iran

Together, let's ensure the Asiatic Cheetah survives in the wild!
