Toronto Zoo: Parc Safari and Cheetahs

toronto zoo: The two newcomers are the first cheetahs to ever be born in Quebec, according to CTV. In June 2016, Parc Safari announced a joint project with the Toronto Zoo to inseminate the park's female cheetahs with the goal of encouraging the species' survival. In a video posted to Facebook, Parc Safari gave the public a look at cheetah cubs Mosi and Jelanie, who were born in May. There are currently just 9,000 cheetahs in the wild, down from an estimated population in 1900. The two cubs are not yet viewable to the public but will hopefully soon join the park's three females and five males. They are classified as a vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. ( As reported in the news.
