30 August - National Cheetah Day in Iran
The Asiatic Cheetah is a big cat found in Iran and is the only cheetah subspecies indigenous to Asia. While the Asiatic Cheetah resembles the African cheetah, the two are different subspecies with the Asiatic cheetah being slightly smaller than its African counterpart. Asiatic cheetah, the planet's fastest mammal, are facing extinction as their population has dramatically shrank to less than 7000.
Efforts by environmentalists have helped to prevent the extinction of this extraordinary animal. Installation of trackers and fines for hunting animals have been among them. August 31st is celebrated as the National Cheetah Day in Iran, to draw attention to the Cheetah's situation and let the Iranians know they are the custodians of the last Asiatic cheetahs on earth.
Iranian Cheetah Society is a non-governmental organization in order to save the Iranian biodiversity with the Asiatic Cheetah as flagship species.
