The rise in international diplomacy is also likely to contribute to sustained conservation efforts for wildlife within Iran's borders. On a recent trip to Iran, FIFA president Joseph Sepp Blatter mentioned in a tweet, "Met Iran VP Masoumeh Ebtekar. I learnt how the Iranian Cheetah is endangered species and will be new symbol of national team, raising awareness."
Soccer fans can help contribute with a purchase of the Iranian national team soccer jersey. One euro from each jersey that is sold will be donated to Conservation of the Asiatic Cheetah Project to help with conservation efforts.
