Asiatic Cheetah Population Monitoring Program

Since 2012, a highly advantageous program has been in place to better understand the endangered Asiatic Cheetahs, also known as Acinonyx jubatus venaticus, in specific reserves located in northern and southern parts of Iran. Camera traps have been instrumental in gathering critical information on the elusive species, enabling an accurate determination of their population dynamics and abundance. The invaluable information garnered has enabled a comprehensive understanding of Asiatic cheetahs regarding movement, reproduction, and minimum population size. With the results of this important program now available, we can collaboratively develop efficient conservation plans with the Iranian government and other NGOs. The program is an ongoing initiative, and we strive to continuously monitor the cheetahs in their breeding habitats for as long as possible.
