London, Nov. 2, 2017 (AltAfrika)-Malawi is celebrating a wildlife landmark with the birth of two furry newborn cheetah cubs to the Liwonde National Park, a milestone for the country’s dwindling population.
Africa parks released a post on Instagram introducing to the world the first sighting of the cubs born in Malawi in over 20 years. The cubs were born to one of the four cheetahs that were relocated to the park earlier in 2017 and it has been reported by Liwonde that there are two cubs.
The cubs were befitting of their birthday as they were born on Mother’s Day in Malawi on 15 October. The Liwonde National Park has not seen a cheetah birth in over 100 years and marks it as a turning point for the species population in Malawi and the world.
Not only are these little cubs cute but they are also a movement forward for the cheetah in Africa.
