NEWSLINK: Big drop in global cheetah numbers

Cheetah numbers are in steady decline; in 1975 there were 14,000 wild cheetahs, today the number hovers just over 7,000. New data suggests the numbers may fall by 53 percent over the next 15 years. This comes from Panthera, the global wild cat conservation organization. Speaking with National Geographic, the head of the organization, Luke Hunter sets out what this means: "That’s a very active decline, and you have to really step in and act to address that."
