Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild


The fastest animal on land, the cheetah can accelerate at the rate of a sports car and sprint at up to 75mph.  Easily recognised by its spotted coat, black ‘tear marks’ and long legs and back, the cheetah is a stunning animal.  Once found on five continents, the species is now endangered.  Wild populations are under threat due to conflict with humans, loss of habitat and prey, plus loss of genetic diversity.
