August 31, cheetah conservation day, is the reminiscent of the glorious past, great ambitions and respectability of Iranians. It reminds us that Iran is the only country in the ancient continent that successfully saved the last remnants of Asiatic cheetah and it reminds us the promise we made to conserve them. This day reminds us the great responsibility we have in saving this natural heritage in front of God almighty and humankind. We promised to join hands and cooperate to conserve the cheetahs. We believe that Asiatic cheetah’s greatest threat is lack of suitable public knowledge, therefore we witness people kill cheetah and its habitat defragmented by constructional activities such as roads and mining and also livestock overgrazing. So our second greatest mission, after the conservation of cheetah’s habitats, is to spread awareness about cheetahs. We also promise to:
1- Do not hunt in Cheetah’s habitat at all.
2- Resist against Cheetah’s habitat destruction in every position and job we are.
3- Help the environment’s guards, who are the frontline troops, in conserving the protected areas.
4- Report observing cheetah, anywhere in Iran, to environment offices.
5- Increase our knowledge about cheetah and convey it to others, either orally or by using whatever media we have access to.
6- Follow the news about cheetah and inform the others
7- Teach our children the importance of conserving cheetah and other natural heritage of our country.
We are sure that together, either individuals or groups( public or private), young or old, apply all of our efforts in conserving cheetah , we are going to be successful in the eyes of our children and people of the world. We hope that one day the population of cheetah increases and it removes from this critical condition so that we could proudly claim cheetah as a precious natural heritage of Iran.
They call for the reintroduction of this animal with a previous study
The Association Ecologistas en Acción de Granadilla and Conservationist Association Wolf Cerval, both in Cáceres, confirm that the Iberian lynx breeding in freedom in the province of Cáceres, after watching several times a female with three cubs.
The head of the nature of ecologists in action Granadilla, Carlos Pino, indicates that members of these associations have observed a female with three cubs, a fact that, in their view, confirms that the recovery of the Lynx is a fact. For this reason, pine asked to start the reintroduction of the Lynx in captivity with a previous study of the territories occupied by lynxes.
Ecologists in action Granadilla is confident that the Administration, in addition to generating the necessary awareness for the conservation of the Iberian lynx, continue the study already initiated by the guards “in order to be abreast of the status of cats released”. The two associations have requested in addition to the Ministry of Agriculture of the regional government the removal of boxes pitfalls in terms of Santa Cruz de Paniagua and Granadilla farm. In this sense, pine stressed that these cases pose a risk to the health of the Iberian lynx, even more so in summer breeding season, ‘risking the separation from the mother of the puppies’. Both groups expect will reach a population of 25 Lynx released this year and appreciate the good work of the wardens of the Iberian lynx in the North of Cáceres.

When it comes to looking after all the species that are already endangered, there’s such a lot to do that sometimes it might all seem to be too much, especially when there are so many other important things to worry about. But if we stop trying, the chances are that pretty soon we’ll end up with a world where there are no Tigers. And I think that would be a shame, don’t you?

Drugging of the Temple Tigers – Drugging has always been suspected, particularly with some of the tiger
used alot with the public. They did show sedation
signs and symptoms. However, I personally never caught them being drugged, and I have never said that I did, others did. However, think of this, you are a tiger, a carnivore, you are not fed a correct diet and you NEVER have had red meat
, raw meat or bones to chew on. You are lacking in vitamins instantly. Then you are kept in a cement cage 21 hours per day, no sunshine, no exercise, you are unhealthy and lacking vitamin D you have no muscles tone as you cannot exercise. Then, there is no enrichment to occupy your mind, you are becoming null and void. You are also inbred, and are born with your immunity system already lowered, you are prone to disease and birth defects. Then when you are to move, you are beaten, bullied, intimidated etc. Then you are dragged out and tied to a tree in blazing hot sun for hundreds of tourists per day. You can barely raise your head. That is the factual life of the temple tigers. Drugs are not really necessary to cause this lethargic nature of them. The below photograph is Hernfa. Hernfa has been subjected to all of the above. He is the “tourist head in the lap photo” tiger ~ Sybelle

A Lynx; plural lynx or lynxes is any of the four species
within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wildcats.
The name “lynx” originated in Middle English via Latin from the Greek word “λύγξ”, derived from the Indo-European
root “*leuk-“, meaning “light, brightness”, in reference to
the luminescence of its reflective eyes is considerable confusion about the best way to classify felids at present, and some authorities classify them as part of the genus Felis.
Neither the caracal, sometimes called the Persian lynx or African lynx, nor the jungle cat, called the swamp lynx,
is a member of the Lynx genus.
