Brilliant (and adorably fluffy!) news all the way from Liwonde National Park in Malawi. The best kind of news for a Monday!

Watch: We’ve had a rare sighting of the first wild cheetah cubs to the born in Malawi in 20 years – and are pleased to share that they are doing well! Although it is uncommon to catch a glimpse of them at such a young age, as mum keeps them well hidden and away from predators, we were lucky enough capture these furballs on camera. African Parks and the @endangeredwildlifetrust (EWT) made history in May 2017, when a small founder population of cheetahs was successfully relocated to Liwonde National Park in Malawi, restoring the population of this threatened species at least 20 years after its extinction in the country. The birth of these four cubs, the first in the wild in Malawi in over 20 years, is a conservation milestone, and a positive indicator of how these cheetahs have adapted to their new home. The cheetah population in Liwonde, although small, has grown in just the last year to at least 15, and is part of a larger predator-restoration project for the park, and region.
