#CheetahBirthLive - Be Part Of Cheetah Conservation With A Single Tweet
The amazing team over at the Hoedpsruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) has been at the forefront of cheetah conservation for over 20 years. Many are unaware that the cheetah is by far the most endangered big cat in Africa. The spotted cat has been around for about 4 million years, but its population has decreased bya staggering 90% in only the last 100. Breeding programs like the one at HESC are vital to expanding the cheetah's gene pool and helping to ensure the long term survival of the species.
In order to bring more attention to the dangers cheetahs are facing and help promote the breeding program at HESC, we are attempting to broadcast the birth of the centre's newsest cubs LIVE over the internet. This is a story we feel needs to be told. We want to help spread the word about HESC and now you can help to. How? Just tweet out a message about HESC, the LIVE cheetah birth, or cheetah conservation. Just make sure to use the hashtag #CheetahBirthLive You can be a part of cheetah conservation with a single tweet.
UPDATE: MAY 2nd, HESC has informed us that the mother cheetah has refused to eat, and is therefore expected to give birth in the next 24 hours.
