Toki Update: Fall 2009

The latest information we have on Toki comes from the Web site of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, dated November 24, 2008.

The Ol Pejeta Conservancy would like to announce to Toki fans, that their favourite “celebrity” cheetah is doing well in his secure, 1,700 acre haven within the conservancy.

Predator expert, Stephen Saipan, regularly monitors Toki and reports that he continues to live a natural & peaceful life, hunting impala’s and Thompson’s gazelles, skillfully fending for himself. The only set back for Toki in the past couple of years was a minor operation on his ear, to remove a small swelling that appeared on its tip. The swelling was examined and tested and returned no threatening results. Toki has since fully recovered from the operation.

Efforts to find him a mate are still underway, with future plans of establishing a cheetah breeding programme on the conservancy.

We will continue to update our site with further information about Toki as it becomes available.
