In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Cheetah Camp at the Oregon Zoo

Every October, the Cheetah Conservation Fund (cheetah.org) holds a series of exciting events in Portland, Oregon. This clip was taken at CCF's "Cheetah Camp" at the Oregon Zoo. The big cat in this clip is a King cheetah from Leopard's, Etc. in California. Cheetahs are an endangered species and could vanish from the planet in the next 15 to 20 years without our help to save them from extinction.

What a beautiful creature, Paul, even if slightly irascible!
