Presentation by Parc Safari: They are known to be the fastest land mammals with a maximum speed of 110 km/h in 3.6 seconds. They are easily recognized with their yellow fur lined with black spots. There are only 8,000 of these creatures left in the wild today, a number that leaves them as Africa’s most endangered feline. That’s right, we’re talking about the Cheetah, and International Cheetah Day celebrates these incredible animals while raising awareness about their threat of extinction. Join us December 7th as we talk about those magnificent predators and how to protect them. Bilingual.  For all ages. Everyone welcome, no reservation necessary. In Auditorium.
