Indian soil welcomes the cats from Namibia and South Africa. Eight cheetahs have arrived whereas a total number of 25 tigers would be joining next.
The felines will be released soon in their new home in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park by PM Modi. This is transpiring as a part of the program to reintroduce cheetahs in India.
Gwalior’s Maharajpura airbase welcomed first all the felines in the special plane operated by the Indian Air Force today today around 8 am. Overseeing the arrangements, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia was present at the airport.
Under the minister’s supervision, the cheetahs were transported to the air force chopper which then flew them to Kuno National Park in MP where PM Modi will be releasing them into their new abode soon..
Indian history has been so far representing it as an adobe to Asiatic cheetahs but by 1952 unfortunately the species had to be declared domestically extinct. Looking at global level around seven thousand cheetahs are left in the world today.
