Today the number of Cheetahs that remain have dwindled down to less then 9,000. Some stating their numbers could be as low as 7,500 that remain in the wild.
The cheetah is now restricted to a mere 9% of their historic range. Thankfully however, there are some legit orgs., projects, and people who are on the ground working endlessly trying to keep these numbers stable and from dwindling any further. Such Organizations that need the recognition and support so they can continue to do what they can for the last Cheetahs that grace this Earth.
One in particular known as The Running Wild Cheetah Conservation whose Goal is to Rescue, Research, Rehabilitate, Rewild, Repopulate, Repatriate, Retire, and Release the Cheetah.
Running Wild Conservation is a new Non Profit Organisation dedicated to the responsible breeding, rewilding and releasing of Cheetah. We will also be a forever home for permanently injured and old retired cheetah.We are in the process of establishing a new reserve and sanctuary where cheetah will roam free again and where retired or permanently injured cheetah can grow old in spacious camps, away from public interactions.
Their Mission ~ To repopulate small non-predator reserves with strong and healthy cheetah.
With less than 9000 cheetahs left worldwide the urgency to repopulate the dwindling numbers has become apparent. This is the main objective behind the Running Wild Foundation. With a combined ten years experience in breeding cheetah for the sole purpose of reintroduction we strive to return the Southern African Cheetah population back to a self-sustaining number of individuals. By using our hunting training regime and post release monitoring efforts we ensure the ultimate survival rate for these cats. Research and education play a huge role in future reintroduction objectives and these points are focused on at the project. With a combined effort from different breeders and conservation organizations we can bring the cheetah back from the brink of extinction.
