Malawi Welcomes Endangered Cheetah Cubs

On October 15, Malawi welcomed two cheetah cubs to the Liwonde National Park.

The park has not seen the birth of a cheetah in over 100 years and marks it as a turning point for the species population in Malawi and the world. According to Cheetah Outreach 7,100 cheetahs are left in the African wild and 4,190 in Southern Africa, showing the species endangerment.

The reintroduction of the predator species in Malawi will have a positive impact on creating a functioning and balance ecosystem to thrive. Considering the news of the cheetah cubs being born in Liwonde, there is hope that repopulation through rehabilitation facilities will positively impact the number of cheetahs in the world.
