The North American Species Survival Plan (SSP) for the Cheetah Acinonyx jubatus has developed a cooperative and comprehensive research plan for the long-term management of the species. Networking with zoos, field biologists and scientists, the SSP has managed the captive population from a situation that was clearly not self-sustaining into a well-defined, growing population. This paper describes the development of the SSP and its long-range goals.
