AZA SAFE Signature Species Update: Cheetah

The AZA SAFE Cheetah Conservation Work Plan has been finalized, incorporating feedback from a core team of stakeholders, and a AZA SAFE Cheetah Call for Participation webinar presentation was given on Thursday, May 26. The conservation projects that have been identified for cheetah were outlined and ways that AZA zoos, aquariums and individual members can participate in their implementation were reviewed. The Call for Participation document and a recording of the webinar have been uploaded to the AZA SAFE cheetah webpage, which will assist with discussions about AZA member participation. Should you have questions about any of the projects or be interested in working on one of the SAFE Cheetah projects, please contact Joel Merriman at
