Throughout the camera trapping procedure (July-November 2019) no images of cheetahs were recorded in Miandsasht (North-Khorasan province)- a habitat that has had breeding in the recent years. A vague report of a ranger in this area has also been left unproven.
The only identified dominant male cheetah of the habitat was unfortunately killed due to road accident last year; and no sign of cheetahs were seen ever since.
Even though no cheetahs have been spotted, photos of other species show a rich habitat as you can see in the shared photos.
Despite all discouragements, the Iranian Cheetah Society continues its conservational activities in the cheetah habitats and also encourages conservation outside of the habitat, and breeding programs in fenced facilities.
