Beware Cheetah cub petting offered under the guise of conservation.

At least 600 cheetahs are kept in captivity in South African tourism facilities, offering interactions and cub petting in the name of conservation and education. Do these facilities truly promote the survival of free-ranging cheetahs or is this just an easy revenue stream?

The conservation value of any of these habituated cheetahs is highly questionable.
