Iran’s DOE to exhaust all possibilities to save Asiatic Cheetah from extinction

Financial Tribune – The third phase of the Conservation of Asiatic Cheetah Project, whose draft plan is soon to be reviewed by the Department of Environment and the United Nations Development Program, aims to adopt all alternative methods of breeding the wild cat besides programs to protect it in its habitat.

The CACP is a program jointly undertaken by the DOE and the UNDP with the aim of stabilizing the population of the Asiatic Cheetahs in Iran. It was inaugurated in 2001 and has completed two phases so far. A plan for third phase that will last for five years has been drafted and will be implemented once finalized by the two sides.
