Cheetah going to be to back in India after 74 years
  • Cheetahs are coming back to India! Coming From Namibia by special flight to their new home Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh.
  • India is going to be home once again to the majestic presence of cheetah, the world’s fastest land animal.
  • State government of Madhya Pradesh has declared Kuno as a National Park. It is underway to become second home for Asiatic lions. Recently, Supreme Court mentioned that African Cheetah from Namibia can be introduced in India.
  • KunoPalpur Wildlife Sanctuary is underway to become India’s second home for the Asiatic lion.
  • It is to prevent decline, and possible extinction, in a single habitat due to natural disasters, epidemics, decline in prey or retaliatory killings.
  • Kuno’s habitats have been fine-tuned for these new entrants with abundant populations of herbivores like nilgai, chital, sambhar and chinkara, who are the lions’ natural prey.
  • Geographically, Kuno also features the same kind of semi-arid vegetation in Gir, as it is under the same biogeographic zone. This should make the transition more seamless for the lions.
  • The introduction of lions at Kuno is happening 29 years after it was first proposed.
