||I am completing the circle and travelling to Chicago to do the “Run for the Cheetah!” on April 23,2011, and I need your good heart and help to help me, help them and let’s together save the endangered cheetah from extinction!
Yes, the world’s fastest land animal, the sleek, beautiful and long-legged cheetah, Acinonyx Jubatus, is losing its race for survival. Once a common animal found on five continents, the cheetah is now an Endangered Species. We’ve only about 12,000 left in the wild. The loss of habitat, conflict with humans, as well as its own loss of genetic variation, are the main threats facing the cheetah today. The cheetah needs large expanses of land to survive, but with changes in land use and habitat pressures, such as bush encroachment, this area is becoming smaller and smaller. Unfortunately, captive breeding efforts have not proven meaningful to the cheetah’s hopes of survival.
Please help me with my conservation efforts and contribute your tax deductible donation of $5, $10, $20 or more and/or whatever you can give truly means “the world to me and is the world to them.” I would be forever grateful if you could help me help in this great cause and support for the benefit of the cheetah. I just can’t imagine a world without them. Can you? Support my passion, please, and let me carry your name along with me on April 23, 2011.
Many, many thanks for your support — and don’t forget to forward this link to anyone that you think might want to donate too! Remember — the cheetah desperately needs our attention and help! Come join me and run with the cheetah in 2011!
