a really good book!!! Beautiful Photos!! Interest fact and how cheetahs are looked after in care!! I enjoyed reading this quick 9 chapter book!!

In this last century, the cheetah population in Africa dropped from 100,000 to 10,000. Laurie Marker and the staff at the Cheetah Conservation Fund are doing their best to reverse this trend, having rescued more than 900 cheetahs since 1990, and helped farmers get Kangal dogs that will protect the farmers’ goat flocks. Illus. with full color photos.
