Malawi has cheetahs again
Two decades after cheetahs became extinct in Malawi, Liwonde National Park has reintroduced four. The cheetahs were translocated from South Africa by the conservation non-profit called African Parks, in partnership with the Endangered Wildlife Trust and Malawi’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife. The cheetahs are being kept in bomas for monitoring while they adapt to their new environment, and they will later be released into the park. Cheetahs were once common in Malawi, but habitat loss and poaching wiped them out.
