Abstract

Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a magnificent animal is threatened with extinction. I was mostly attracted to his speed, that makes it by far the fastest land animal and a perfect example of hunters and predators. The goal of my seminar was that you grow closer to the cheetah that is his way of life, natural features, existing subdivisions, where living spaces are inhabited and problems encountered. Today the cheetah as an animal that lived on 5 continents are slowly losing the battle for survival and is currently an endangered species by IUCN list of protection with around 12 500 individuals. Due to the lack of genetic diversity, and a large human influence could happen to completely disappear. That is why today, in different ways trying to enable the coexistence of humans and cheetahs, which slowly and thrives. He is not dangerous to man (except when it feels threatened by destruction of its habitat). So that would be a disaster because of our carelessness and ignorance are left without him. On the other hand the genetic we can not control and can only hope that our nature will not take it as it deserves to live cheetah and beyond.
