As fast as a CHEETAH...
WOW,You did it, in record time! With 29 more days left in Kickstarter there is a solid opportunity to *double* the money raised!
Please consider increasing your donation. Every funder who increases their donation by $30 or more will receive a bonus 5 x 7 signed print.The full budget for this project is much greater than $3000 and every penny will go toward production costs that include:
- Rental vehicles
- Airfare to Africa & between Botswana, Namibia and South Africa
- Lenses - those crazy big ones as seen in nature programs - you don't want me getting mauled, right... amiright?? More importantly you don't want me pestering wild animals, this is not Steve Irwin tactics!
- International cell phone to send you the live updates from the field
- the list goes on... I will travel as light as possible but this is no ordinary trip!
The extended reporting of a story such as this has never been told. Ongoing awareness and pressure will serve as an example for countries such as Angola who do not have a cheetah conservation strategy in place and yet as recent as 6 months ago the cheetah has been rediscovered in country after a decades long absence due to the tragedy of human conflict.
