Cheetahs Return to Malawi

Mongabay reports that earlier this month African Parks, the Endangered Wildlife Trust and Malawi’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife flew four African cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) from South Africa and reintroduced them to Liwonde National Park in southern Malawi. Cheetahs in Malawi have been extinct for nearly 20 years.
