Monday, December 4th is International Cheetah Day and a time to celebrate these magnificent animals and their uniqueness. John Muir Laws will be joined by CCF Staff. We will discuss current efforts in Cheetah conservation and what we can do to help the species.
Then we will explore aspects of the cheetah’s anatomy, structure, and patterns to draw these amazing animals in a close-up portrait and a running action pose.
If you can not join us live, John will make a recording of the workshop and post it on my blog. All ages and experience levels are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there. The class is free but you need to register to attend. Please consider making a donation to support CCF when you register. All donations go to support the Cheetah Conservation Fund.
John Muir Laws is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Why should we protect cheetahs?
As the fastest land mammal, with the ability to go from 0 to 60mph in 3 seconds, cheetahs are the most unique of the big cats. Their speed, beauty, and grace have won hearts worldwide, and today, we ask you to spread awareness of their plight in the wild. Less than 7500 individuals remain, in only 31 populations around the world. Cheetahs suffer from human-wildlife conflict, genetic instability, habitat and prey loss, climate change, and the illegal wildlife trade. Help to raise funds to save this magnificent animal in the wild, and become an ally for cheetahs.
