Cheetahs facing crunch situation

I read this excellent report in Guardian about Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) losing its ability to reproduce because of climate change. The conclusions were arrived at by Scientists with the National Museums of Kenya (NMK) and the Kenya Wildlife Service after extensive research. Cheetahs have developed abnormal coils in its sperm as a result of warmer temperatures, affecting the big cat's ability to reproduce. Read the full report in Guardian HERE

Wildlife mangers, it time to keep your eyes peeled.Look for any unusual changes in your area and work hand in hand with field biologists to stem things in the beginning itself.
