World Cheetah Day

World Cheetah Day (aka International Cheetah Day) was declared in 2010 by Dr. Laurie Marker, founder of Cheetah Conservation Foundation. The date was selected in memory of a cheetah cub named Khayam, who was the subject of groundbreaking study to successfully re-introduce orphaned cheetahs to the wild by teaching them to hunt.

As the world's fastest land mammals, cheetahs can run 110 km/hr (70 mph) and accelerate to top speed in 3 seconds. They prey mostly on smaller hoofed animals such as springbok and gazelles. They are Africa's most endangered big cat, with less than 7,500 left in the wild.

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
