The Weekend Morning is a show broadcast on Iran’s state TV. The latest episode of the show hosted by Hamidreza Reyhanian, a well-known environmental activist, focused on environmental challenges in Iran. The Iranian Cheetah Society’s CEO, Morteza Eslami Dehkordi and Shahram Amiri Sharifi, Manager of Animal Rights Watch were invited to the program to discuss the environmental challenges in Iran and the importance of protecting Iran’s wildlife, including the last Asiatic cheetahs. The current situation of Iran’s wildlife was also reviewed in the program.
During the program, footage of cheetahs was broadcast recorded by the Iranian Cheetah Society’s wildlife cameras installed in Naibandan, Dareh Anjir and Miandasht, some of the areas in the country where cheetahs are protected.
The Iranian Cheetah Society is hoping that broadcasting similar programs will help in educating the public with regards to wildlife protection, in particular the near extinct Asiatic cheetahs.
