3 Sites Recommended To Introduce Cheetah In India


The Wildlife Institute of India and

The Wildlife Trust of India

have recommended three sites

as the best places to re-introduce cheetah into India.

18 cheetah will initially be released on the 3 proposed sites; these cheetah will be obtained from the Middle East and African.

The Report reveals that 10 sites were assessed from seven landscapes in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, for their potential to harbour viable cheetah populations. Field surveys were carried out to collect data on prey abundance, local community dependencies on forest resources and their attitudes towards wildlife, and habitat size.
