ASIAN Geographic Celebrates Cheetahs!
It’s 4 December – Happy International Cheetah Day!
Dr. Laurie Marker is the founder of Cheetah Conservation Fund. She designated 4 December as International Cheetah Day in remembrance of Khayam – a cheetah she raised from a cub at Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon – on his birthday.
One such cheetah species in danger is the Asiatic cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus venaticus), which is now only present in Iran – and in areas where humans are least present. The Asiatic cheetah once ranged from the Arabian Peninsula and Near East to Iran, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan to India. It was already extinct in Turkey in the 19th century, and the other regions in the 20th century.
