Cheetahs are renowned for being the world’s fastest land mammal, but there’s much else that’s fascinating about these speedy predators. Get a more complete picture of these athletic cats, including their evolution, life history, distribution and behaviors, plus the best safari destinations to see them in the wild. Cheetahs are built for speed, sprinting at up to 70 mph in pursuit of their prey, but some of their niche adaptations also pose unique challenges for their survival—these cats are the only surviving species of their genus. Expedition Leader Russell Gerber explains some of the difficulties that hinder the growth and recovery of this vulnerable species, including both external environmental pressures like human-wildlife conflict and internal forces such as limited genetic diversity. You will gain a better understanding of the many unique traits these skilled hunters possess, along with some of the current threats they face. Come away inspired and equipped to contribute to cheetah conservation.
