Adopt a cheetah – cheetah adoption and sponsorship

Adopt a cheetah or sponsor a cheetah

Due to inbreeding, and farmers' mistaken impression that they eat their livestock, numbers of cheetahs in the wild have long been in serious decline. Recent studies estimate that only 12,400 cheetahs remain in the wild. They have been placed on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) list of vulnerable species, and the US Endangered Species Act.

It's never been so important to sponsor or adopt a Cheetah through organisations such as the the WWF.

The WWF is dedicated to nurturing and protecting endangered species of animals from all over the world. Their website offers you the opportunity to contribute to the welfare of many different species that desperately need protection. This can be done quickly and easily online.

Through its animal adoption and sponsorship scheme, the WWF returns endangered animals to safe, natural habitats. Why not adopt or sponsor an animal today, and help them do their vital work? Adopting an animal in this way can also serve as a creative and worthwhile ethical gift for family or friends whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or as a creative Valentine's gift.

Sponsor or adopt a cheetah today and help protect endangered animals for years to come.
