Amber: This has been such an interesting year. As keepers, we are privileged to watch cheetahs give birth and to see cubs grow, but it was extra wonderful to share this experience with you from the beginning. Myself, and the cheetah team at SCBI would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who tuned in to our temporary Cheetah Cub Cam and followed along with our #CheetahCubdates.
Adrienne: Although our routine #CheetahCubdate series is coming to a close, these cubs are only at the beginning of their story. Keep an eye on our website for periodic updates on Amabala, Hasani, Jabari and Erindi’s milestones, and other news about our cheetahs who reside both at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, and at the Zoo in Washington, D.C.
It has been a pleasure to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how our staff cares for these cubs over the past year. Thank you so much for your thoughtful questions, supportive comments and collective passion for these amazing animals!
Head over tail for Echo and her cubs? Be sure to read all the previous updates, and don’t miss a decade of milestones for SCBI’s cheetah breeding program.
