Have you ever seen a cheetah running in the forest? With a top speed of 60 miles per hour, it can catch any of its prey. While they may seem to have such a huge advantage you may expect them to be somewhere at the top of the food chain! The sad truth is that they’re not, in fact, there are only 7,100 cheetahs remaining in the whole world. What is causing them to go up the path of extinction? It is not nature, it’s humans. Their natural habitats are dying and slowly shrinking, they have no prey to hunt as a result of humans hunting for pleasure, and on top of that, there is also the illegal poaching of cheetah cubs in which many die. These creatures have stayed within their boundaries and did what was needed to survive but now their future remains uncertain and it seems as if they are forced to run towards their death. These magnificent creatures that have fur dusted with gold and piercing amber eyes, have looked upon many troubled times and have faced near-death. These lightning-quick animals which once walked the earth in huge numbers are being reduced day by day. We don’t have any right to bring upon the extinction of the cheetahs or any animal for that matter. Over-hunting, poaching, destroying natural habitats-This is a result of human greed and has to be battled against. There are already many leading organizations that specifically work on getting the number of cheetahs back to normal and we must try our best to do everything in our power to support their cause. In the end, it’s very simple, if we leave these creatures undisturbed they will repopulate again and their race will be saved. So let’s Save cheetahs and pledge to let them live a peaceful life.
