THE CHEETAH IS FACING MANY PROBLEMS
Cheetah in the Masai MaraLoss of prey to other predators, ineffective hunting and lack of food lead to a small survival rate of the cubs.
road deathBetween 2005 and 2011 at least 11 cheetahs got killed by road accidents. The actual loss is probably higher.

Cheetahs get still illegally caught for life in captivity.

Because of the low number of the cheetahs they are forced to mate with close relatives which limits the genetic diversity of the kind. This means the animal is more susceptible to diseases and deformations so the number of offspring lowers and the death rate rises.
