Cosmas and I both returned from the field on Friday 12 August. Cosmas left Salama after lunch. Between the new Malili mar­ket cen­ter and the sign post for the new ICT cen­ter a male chee­tah ran across the road. Our radio col­lared chee­tah (Jane) crossed the road in nearly the same place in 2009. The new land devel­op­ment will indeed have a huge impact on the chee­tahs of that area.
