Allow me to introduce you to my friend the cheetah: It's the world's fastest land animal, and we've lost over 90 percent of the world's wild population in the last 100 years. The cheetah and I are old friends.
The purpose of the Clinton Global Initiative is to help commitment makers like myself connect with potential partners and resources to make these big ideas into reality. Our goal is to create large landscapes that are healthy places for people, livestock and predators and prey.
If the cheetah loses its race for survival, the American Prong-horn Antelope will become the fastest land mammal, and all those textbooks naming the cheetah as the fastest land animal will need to be changed.
