THE ASIATIC CHEETAH CONSERVATION PROJECT, ACCP
A century ago, thousands of cheetahs ranged from Central Asia to India and Arabia. By 1997 a mere 100 remained in Iran alone.
Hormoz Asadi founded and directed the ACCP as the first person to study the Iranian cheetah under vital national and international supports. His love for the rare cat was inherited by his daughter, Lobat, a driven wildlife spokesperson and educator who continues his legacy of wildlife conservation.
Curriculum development that inspires youth about the Asiatic cheetah and wildlife conservation is offered. We have material for use with learners of all levels. We can also tailor educational materials that will raise awareness about the Asiatic cheetah specific to your needs and audience of any age. The curriculum developed can be in English or other languages. We are a member of Dr. Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots youth program.
Get support from an environmental social scientist.We help media, film and writers through sociocultural advising, and content development about the Asiatic cheetah. We have the acumen, language skills, as well as the cultural and conservation influence and insights, to reach the best sources. With contacts with organizations and wildlife workers inside and out of Iran, we can help craft writing about Asiatic cheetahs including cultural history, why they're endangered & needed expert recommendations .
Asiatic Cheetahs are misunderstood predators caught between the crossfire of sanctions and habitat loss. ACCP gives talks and runs campaigns aimed at raising awareness about the plight of the critically endangered Asiatic species. We publish books, write articles and Op-Eds, as well as advise and collaborate with filmmakers, media, news outlets, journalists and magazines to support their efforts. We also work with wildlife advocates and artists as much as possible for innovative ways to rally conservation efforts.
We are a not for profit, non political organization - we exist solely to serve the Asiatic cheetah! We donate to the most suitable wildlife organizations such as the International Union of Nature Conservation, IUCN, as well as on the ground conservationists, who focus on Asiatic cheetah efforts.
What would it be like to be one of the last of your species? Based on a true story of a cheetah cub rescued by Dr. Hormoz Asadi, Marita the Cheetah teaches wildlife conservation & ethics. This upcoming book educates about the perils of cheetah-life in Iran as it provides cheetah facts & fables! Can we learn from Marita the Cheetah's struggle to survive?
You may know that cheetah are the fastest animals on Earth, but did you know the Asiatic cheetah was an aristocat? They were prized as hunting companions, raced with greyhounds, and kept as pets! There are many cheetah lessons to be learned about ethical treatment of animals, as you learn more about the Asiatic cheetah in our Cheetah Lessons.
We will only email when we have a tale!
