The Iranian Cheetah Society is a non-profit and non-governmental organization established in 2001 to work towards the preservation of the valuable Asiatic Cheetah. Since its inception, hundreds of experts, volunteers, and supporters have joined hands to change the fate of this beautiful cat in the deserts of Iran. Today, various activities are being carried out in cooperation with park rangers and managers of the Department of Environment during the 20 years of activity of the Society. The experience gained during these 20 years and direct contact with the government sector, local communities, and international organizations has turned the Iranian Cheetah Society into a mature organization in the field of non-governmental nature conservation activities in Iran. Despite various political, economic, and social crises in these two decades, the Society has not only weathered all these storms but has also grown and expanded its activities. Today, we believe that the fate and survival of the Asiatic cheetah is still in our hands as Iranians, and the Society will use all its power to change the fate of the Iranian cheetah until the last moment. We are undoubtedly indebted to the sacrifices and direct and indirect support of countless members, volunteers, and supporters. Without public support, the Society would never have been able to overcome all these crises and remain a pioneer in protecting the Iranian cheetah after two decades. This short documentary attempts to use images from various activities of the Society over the years. However, since there were no usable and quality images from all activities, especially from activities in the early years, these images are not indicative of all activities and all role-players. Additionally, due to lack of facilities, many activities were not recorded on that time.
