Three endangered cheetah cubs born at Fota Wildlife Park in Cork

Amazing news, and Fota Wildlife Park want your help naming them.

Fota Wildlife Park has announced the birth of three endangered Northern cheetah cubs.


The cubs, one male and two females, were born on 10 June, but have only recently started venturing out of their cubbing den.

Fota said that they have spent the last few days enjoying the mild weather playing together in the grass and on the logs of their habitat - in an area known as Cheetah Hill.

And Fota are looking for your help in naming the little legends.

While you could also have the pride that goes with knowing you've named the two cheetahs, you can also win one of three year-long Conservation annual passes to Fota Wildlife Park.

Lead ranger Julien Fonteneau said about the births: "We are delighted to be announcing a second litter of Northern cheetah cubs since re-opening in May.

"Without a doubt, the Northern cheetah is the most successful breeding programme here at Fota and the species has become synonymous with the Park - it’s even on our logo.

"We put that breeding success down to the naturalistic habitats and environments that we create for the animals."
