Cheetah Cubs Birth - LIVE Baby Monitor
UPDATE - July 21 - Salome and her cubs are being moved to a bigger enclosure, the cubs are not being separated from Salome just yet. The reason for this move is to provide mother and babies will more space to roam and play as the cubs are growing up.Unfortunately the enclosure is too large for us to film in, but we hope to bring you another LIVE cheetah birth very soon, so stay tuned and make sure you are on the email list!

The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) focuses on the conservation of rare, vulnerable or endangered animals. Cheetah Conservation is one of their core disciplines.
The LIVE camera above is going to be broadcasting the LIVE cheetah birth of Salome, our expecting cheetah mother. The room you will see is a small birth hut connected to her enclosure at the HESC maternity ward. We also have an exterior camera installed to watch and monitor Salome before she goes into labor.
It is expected that a few hours before the birth is about to take place she will begin going in and out of the small room. Once that starts to happen the actual birth should follow shortly. The birth will last for several hours, depending on how many cubs she has.
