"Wild About Cheetahs" was a SOLD OUT event! CHEETAH
KIDS would like to thank everyone who came out to support cheetahs & Dr. Laurie Marker in Tucson, AZ at the Reid Park Zoo. We
were fortunate to bring Dr. Marker to Tucson to help our community
learn about wild cheetahs and the challenges they face daily in their
African ecosystem. We had a great time seeing zoo creatures, eating, bidding on silent auction items and listening to Dr. Marker speak about what she's doing in Namibia, AFRICA to help save wild cheetahs from extinction. Her presentation included beautiful cheetah videos & photos - many of Chewbakka, her Ambassador Cheetah.
