Threatened species of Acinonyx

Other Names:
Threatened species of Cheetah
Nature:
Cheetah numbers have plummeted in the last 50 years due to loss of habitat, high cub mortality from predators, and conflicts with humans. Cheetahs are also imperiled by a "genetic bottleneck" or lack of genetic variety, which makes the species particularly vulnerable to disease and reproductive problems.
Incidence:
1 vulnerable, 1 endangered sub-species.
Broader Problems:
Threatened species of Felidae
Problem Type:
R: Rejected Provisionally
