Did you know?
Nearly all wild cheetahs are found in sub-Saharan Africa, where they roam across the open, grassy savanna plains and forests.
Cheetahs are carnivores, meaning they eat meat. They are skilled hunters that feed on hares, antelope, impalas, wildebeest calves and gazelles.
Cheetahs chase their prey at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour (113 kilometres per hour)! It takes a lot of energy to run that fast so sprints are short, lasting between 20-60 seconds.
Your mission: chase like a cheetah
Gather your friends and family and challenge them to a speedy clean-up mission. How many pieces of plastic can you chase down in under a minute? Be sure to recycle what you can!
Remember, Planet Heroes...
Don’t forget to ask your parent or guardian for permission before going on a clean-up mission, and always wear protective gloves.
