There is still some hope for that.Educating the people of the habitat areas is the main problem here.

You're welcome!  :aww: 


I was meaning to comment on what was said about only 100 of those cheetahs left, from your description. 

And I meant to type 'left', not 'let'.  Sweating a little...

Yes,It's a pity we have just this little population of them extant.But I hope we could save them from disappearing.

Wow!Have people introduced African cheetahs to replace them (like they did with the ostrich to replace the extinct Asiatic ostrich)?
Reply
:iconleogon:
Leogon Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well,actually there is so little difference between the two subspecies.However, the Asiatic cheetahs are somehow slenderer and their fur in some areas is a bit longer than the Africans.The two subspecies have been divided since 35000 years ago.
I think it would be better to conserve original Asiatic cheetahs than re-introducing African ones to the previously natural habitats like India and Arabian peninsula.:-)

I think they should conserve persian cheetahs and if they go extinct replace them.
