Dune and Nyx

NAME: Dune

GENDER: Female

AGE: (2017) 3 years

WEIGHT: (2016) 33.5Kg

ORIGIN: Walvis Bay, Namib Desert, near Dune 7

COMPANIONS IN ENCLOSURE: Swakop and Mundi. (AKA The Saltpans)

REASON FOR CAPTIVITY: To be released. Dune Swakop & Mundi – AKA  'The Sawkopmunders'  will remain in AfriCat's care until space opens in the Okonjima Nature Reserve for their rehabilitation to start.

 

Dune is one of our cheetahs at AfriCat's Rehabilitation Centre.

Dune is the newest member of the AfriCat Foundation. She was found together with her brother in May 2015 close to Dune 7 near Walvis Bay. The two 4 - 5 months old cubs were severely dehydrated and in poor condition and shortly after they were detected for the first time the male cub died due to starvation and dehydration. The local vet Dr. Hartmut Winterbach was able to dart Dune, who subsequently was brought into the care of the SPCA Swakopmund. Three days later she was collected by the AfriCat Team and placed alongside  Nyx - Dizzy’s cub - who had to recover from a tibia and pelvis fracture. Dune and Nyx became close friends and it was amazing to watch how these two lonesome cheetahs kept each other company.

In June 2015 Nyx died unexpectedly due to complications with his pelvis fracture and Dune had to face the third great loss in her short life.
Dune is very relaxed around human company, unlike Swakop and Mundi who have stayed very wild and untrusting?!  Dune’s general body condition improved rapidly and she has always had a good appetite.
In order to avoid long-term captivity and give her the chance to return back to the wild as soon as possible, we introduced Dune to the Saltpans,  Swakop and Mundi who were - just like Dune, - found as orphans in the Namib Desert in 2013.
