The cheetah triplets at Wild Place Project are also celebrating their eighth birthdays this week. Keepers have given them boxes filled with their favourite treats to mark the occasion.
The three brothers, called Jake, Brooke and Oscar, arrived at the attraction in 2015 and live in a large grassy paddock at Wild Place’s Mahali Pori National Park exhibit. Their exhibit at Wild Place Project is sponsored by Aspirations
Cheetahs are the world’s fastest land mammals but central African cheetahs are classified as vulnerable with less than 2,000 in the wild. Wild Place Project is one of only a handful of attractions in the UK to keep the central African cheetah.
