Cheetahs Find ways to save them

We as people can save cheetahs we can raise money to the conservation programs and organizations, such as the National Geographic Big Cats Initiative. We can help cheetahs for example learn and find ways to watch them grow and live in their natural habitat and how they behave and how we can raise money for cheetahs. Another example is we have lost 90% of the world's wild population and it has decreased in the past 100 years if we don't do something the cheetah will be gone forever. So this why we must start helping cheetahs and all other kinds of wild life before all of them go extinct.

A cheetah's natural habitat is in the Sub-Saharan Africa and also in eastern and southern African parts. For example the cheetah is the fastest land mammal while sprinting a cheetah can reach 45 mph (72 km/h) within 2.5 seconds. The cheetah's like dry, open grasslands where they can pick up speed to kill prey. Another example is that cheetah's only need to drink water every 3-4 days! That is why we can't destroy or harm the cheetah's natural habitat.

a sequence of a cheetah's life cycle is that we don't need to hurt any cheetah because if any cheetah doesn't mate they don't have any offspring. For example the cheetah is all ready born with spots, when the cheetah is 2 months old its eyes open for the first time, and at 6 months old it will be able to stop drinking its mother's milk and eat real food, and at 18 months the mother will leave her cubs. Another example is the cubs will form a sibling group that will stay together for another six months and the following years they will hunt, sleep, and mate. These are reasons why we should be careful not to harm the cheetah's life cycle.

why are cheetahs becoming extinct they are becoming it because of effects of dwindling habitat the species had also been decimated by farmers seeking to protect their herds. For example speed can put the cheetah in high risk during a chase a cheetah's start getting to tired and vulnerable to attack it is also timid defender for its family and prey. Another reason is that if threatened they run away than rather to fight they lose much of the kill to more aggressive species. These are good facts why cheetahs are becoming extinct.

Why are cheetahs and jaguars alike and different. They both don't inhabit the same areas, for example they are both considered endangered in their native habitat and hunting and development have fragmented the home ranges of these beautiful big cats. Jaguars make homes in various habitats dense woodlands, swamps, grasslands, and rain forests. Jaguars hunt on their own this is an exception while they are breeding. Cheetahs live in the Savannas same habitat as their grazing prey species. Female Cheetahs live alone, except when raising cubs. Male cheetahs live and hunt with their male siblings. This is how cheetahs and jaguars are alike and different.
