Fewer than 12,000 cheetahs remain in Africa and Iran. Victim of a redistribution of its territory and of more and more serious conflicts with humans, the fastest land animal on the planet must face a race against time, a race whose outcome may determine its fate.
In Kenya, there are no more than about a thousand left, mostly living outside of national parks due to competition with other predators like lions and hyenas. Cheetahs cannot survive in geographical zones which are too restrictive as they are genetically weak. Conserving a network of ecological corridors is therefore of great importance for the survival of the species. The region of Salama in the southeast of Nairobi is one of these critical areas which will determine the future of this graceful feline.
Boopy has joined Action for Cheetahs in Kenya to find lasting solutions with the population to ensure cheetah survival in the Salama region, a complicated balance, but full of hope. Discover the project.
