Lecture: A Future for Cheetahs

View extraordinary and rare photographs of wild cheetahs by renowned wildlife photographer Suzi Esterhas, and meet Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder and Executive Director of the Cheetah Conservation Fund and author of the book A Future for Cheetahs. 

Cheetah populations have plummeted from 100,000 to 10,000, and the world's fastest land mammal is facing extinction within our lifetime. Dr. Marker has spent the last 20 years in Namibia, Africa, working to assist humans and cheetahs in living side by side. She will discuss the problems facing the cheetah and the many reasons to hope for its future. Following the talk, she will sign copies of her recently published book.
