UNDP Iran releases Asiatic Cheetah PSAJun 15, 2015
Iran is the last habitat of the precious Asiatic Cheetah. Even up to half a century ago, the species was widespread across the Indian subcontinent and Central and South-West Asia.
Recognizing the problem, the Government of Iran – together with UNDP and a number of concerned and committed national and international NGOs – joined forces back in 2001 to save these emblematic cats through the Conservation of the Asiatic Cheetah Project (CACP).
We are pleased to share with you a Public Service Announcement produced by Blue Lotus Film to urge the citizens of the world – and especially the citizens of Iran – to unite to protect the Asiatic Cheetah.
It is now estimated that approximately 50 Asiatic Cheetahs are living in the wild in Iran. But the numbers appear to be rising again as a result of the establishment of protected areas as well as the cooperation of local communities and the vigilance of game guards who try to protect the animals from poachers.
The destiny of this unique species lies in the hands of each and every one of us.
Join us by watching and sharing this PSA. Let’s unite for the Asiatic Cheetah.
