In North Africa, cheetah populations are endangered and their survival in the near future has not been secured yet. This alarming situation is compelling for urgent concerted actions to be designed and implemented by governments of range countries and all stakeholders. Algeria, in particular, is expected to play a leading role within the international efforts for saving the last North African cheetahs for that it is still supporting an internationally important free ranging population. However, the success or failure of any conservation project with regard to antilope restoration and cheetah conservation in the Sahelo-Saharan region will definitely depend on the degree of human awareness and attitudes, at different levels, towards the initiative in question. The purpose of the paper Human attitudes of Sahelo-Saharan Antelopes & Cheetah: Algeria in context is to briefly summarize and discuss different human attitudes which may affect the development of any project aiming to restore and conserve extirpated antelopes and cheetah, respectively, in Algeria.
