Pet cheetahs are the latest status symbol in the Gulf countries
The Observers is a collaborative project that includes both a website and a weekly TV show, all based on amateur content.
Many wealthy individuals in the Gulf states are filling their Instagrams with posts of their pet cheetahs. But it comes at a high cost— trafficking cheetahs from the Horn of Africa is seriously endangering the species' survival.
The Observers program brings you the best amateur images from around the world, all verified by France 24 journalists. To see more reports from our Observers – and to become an Observer yourself! – head to our website: www.observers.france24.com/en.
