Another THREE new cheetah cubs have been documented in Liwonde National Park in Malawi!! This is the first time cheetah cubs have been born in Malawi in 20 years, and the first time for Liwonde in 100 years! The cubs were born to one of the four wild cheetahs translocated to the park in May this year. Decades of habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and poaching severely reduced the nation’s predator populations, entirely eradicating cheetahs, a species threatened with extinction in Africa. The reintroduction of the cheetah is historic for the country and ushers in a new era for the park, where the return of large predators is part of a larger restoration plan for the parks’ natural ecosystem and the conservation of this highly vulnerable species. Together with the DNPW and the @endangeredwildlifetrust , we've been able to bring this iconic cat home.
