Although captivating, cheetahs are in constant threat of extinction from habitat loss, human/wildlife conflict, and illegal wildlife trade. This augmented reality app is meant to share some of the intrigue of these big cats, without the danger posed by keeping them as pets or visiting their habitats in the wild.
Modeled after real cheetah behavior, this big cat will keep an eye on you and react as you move around. But be careful that you dont get too close! Just like the real counterparts to this virtual predator, it will get startled and hostile if you dont use caution.
To document your encounters with this beast of prey, use the camera to take photos or video that you can save and share on social media! Post using #SaveTheCheetah to help to raise awareness about cheetah conservation.
If you want to learn more about cheetahs and the challenges that they face, augmented reality facts that float beside the cat will help you discover more about the regions where they live, their diet, population, stats, and about the harmful effects of illegal pet trade.
For even more information about cheetah conservation and education, the Cheetah Conservation Fund allows visitors to dive deeper with links and content provided by the global leader in research and conservation of these big cats.
