Instagram – December 4th, 2018

Today is not only #wildlifeconservation day– one of our most celebrated days in the calendar at Empowers Africa HQ – but also #worldcheetahday , so what better time to raise awareness of the plight of the beautiful cats? Sadly, there are only around 7000 left in the wild, mainly due to shrinking habitat, illegal poaching, and conflict with human activities, all of which can be halted with a little awareness, education, and a good deal of action.
The sad truth is that it’s not just cheetah numbers that are declining. Some of the world’s most loved and beautiful species are at risk of becoming extinct in our lifetime and that’s exactly where Wildlife Conservation Day comes in. Join us in spreading awareness of wildlife crime, and be part of the global solution ❤️ 📸 @jamessuter
