In a collaboration between private landowners, academia, and tourism organisations, two male cheetah were released at the Etosha Heights Private Reserve situated close to Etosha National Park’s southwestern border last week where they will improve the gene-pool of the existing population within the conservation area. Prof Morgan Hauptfleisch from the Namibia University of Science and Technology’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Sciences Department, in a Youtube post, says that to ensure they settle into their new home, their movements will be monitored through GPS satellite collars.
