There has been ALOT of excitement here at Cawston Wildlife Estate as a trail cam set up to catch images of a Leopard captured a different beautiful cat that we have not seen in this area for many years. It captured this male Cheetah.
A new Cheetah for the Conservation Project
It has been confirmed that this Cheetah is new to the nationwide database and we truly hope he chooses to settle here. The Cheetah numbers in Zimbabwe are rapidly declining and in desperate need of any kind of help. If you happen to spot a Cheetah during your travels, especially if not within National Park grounds please contact the Cheetah Conservation Project Zimbabwe and report it using their online form.
The Cheetah Conservation Project Zimbabwe was founded in 2012 by Dr. Esther van der Meer. The project aims to conserve cheetahs through applied research, education, collaboration and capacity building
We hope you enjoy the images as much as we have!
