Basel Zoo has once again seen the birth of baby cheetahs after a gap of five years. Mother Alima brought her four female offspring into the world on 24 July. As cheetah breeding is an extremely difficult exercise, the birth can be seen as a success. Cheetahs are endangered in the wild, which is why Basel Zoo is supporting a project to protect predators. The four young animals at Basel Zoo are part of the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP). They can be seen in the enclosure by the Etosha House.
