On the Brink of Extinction | Photograph by Achim Stoeckinger
“In the past century, the cheetah population has declined from over 100,000 animals to about 7,100 adults. Today the cheetah is racing against extinction,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Achim Stoeckinger. “Do you see the wild soul behind these beautiful eyes? Support conservation efforts for African wildlife to prevent the extinction of these and other unique species.” This photo was selected for the October 5, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.
“This is one beautiful big cat portrait. I love being able to see this magnificent cat so up close with amazing detail. Awesome work filling your frame with the cheetah to create a clean frame so all we focus on is the cat’s intense gaze. Nicely done!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
