A Historic Homecoming: South Africa Welcomes Back Cheetah from Australia

In a pioneering conservation effort, Edie, the first cheetah cub born in Australia at Sydney’s Wild Cat Conservation Centre, has been successfully translocated to South Africa, marking a historic achievement in wildlife preservation. This collaboration between the Wild Cat Conservation Centre, WeWild Africa, The Metapopulation Initiative, and Mziki Private Game Reserve showcases the importance of international partnerships in enhancing genetic diversity and fighting species decline. Edie’s journey, characterized by extensive rewilding preparation and post-release monitoring, not only sets a precedent for future conservation projects but also highlights the potential for captive-bred animals to bolster wild populations, promising a brighter future for endangered species worldwide. Edie will now undergo an acclimatization and phased release processes in South Africa.
