Shiraz in soft-release study

In February, as a part of our soft-release research, we released some of our resident cheetahs - Shiraz and her four cubs - into our fenced reserve, Bellebeno. Our staff, students and volunteers are monitoring the cats constantly through radio-telemetry. Our hope is that Shiraz will learn how to hunt and, in doing so, will teach her cubs to make them more self-sufficient in the wild. This is ground breaking research and is being done very systematically. We will keep you posted on their progress.
