Fota Wildlife Park is delighted to have four new cubs born in such a vulnerable wild species.
Kelly Lambe, Lead Ranger said 'We are delighted to welcome four new cheetah cubs to Fota Wildlife Park as the Northern Cheetah is considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.'
'Cheetahs face many threats to their population including the conversion of their natural habitat, grasslands, to agricultural zones, conflict with humans and competition for food with other large predators such as lions, leopards and hyenas.'
For each cub named, the moniker-bestower will receive a free annual pass to the Park.
