Wild Wonders welcomes new cheetah cub

BONSALL – Nature can be cruel. Often when a single cub is born, or becomes a singleton from the litter dying, mother cheetahs will abandon the cub or stop lactating.

Meet Tavi. As Tavi was a singleton with no mom or litters his age to cross foster, a decision was made to hand raise him to save his life.

Wild Wonders feels blessed to be chosen as Tavi's forever home. Shortly he will be introduced to his four-legged furry companion, Yarra, and these two will become fast friends.

Tavi's mission as he grows up will be to raise awareness and support for his wild cousins, following in the footsteps of Wild Wonders' other cheetahs. A running chronicle of Tavi's and Yarra's adventures can be found on the Wild Wonders website,

In celebration of International Cheetah Day Dec. 4, Wild Wonders will offer multiple cheetah-related events over the next two months. During Thanksgiving week, a special Cheetah Camp will be offered for kids 6-12 and, in early December, special fundraising tours will be held for Wild Wonders' conservation partners in South Africa.
