Union Forest Minister Bhupender Yadav has announced that officials involved in the cheetah revival plan will be sent on study tours to Namibia and South Africa. This decision comes after the unfortunate deaths of cheetahs and their cubs in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park. The cheetahs in the national park were brought from Namibia and South Africa as part of an ambitious reintroduction program.
Study Tours Planned to Address Cheetah Deaths
In response to the deaths of cheetahs and their cubs, Union Forest Minister Bhupender Yadav has decided to send project officials on study tours to Namibia and South Africa. The purpose of these tours is to gather valuable insights and knowledge from these countries, where the cheetahs were originally sourced, to better understand and address the challenges faced by the cheetah revival plan in Kuno National Park.
Efforts to Ensure Safety and Revival of Cheetahs
During a meeting with Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Minister Yadav expressed his commitment to the safety, conservation, and revival of the cheetahs in Kuno National Park. He assured that financial support and logistic assistance will be provided for these efforts. Minister Yadav himself plans to visit Kuno National Park on June 6 to assess the situation and further strategize the conservation measures.
Challenging Situation with Cheetah Deaths
The deaths of cheetahs in Kuno National Park have been a cause of concern. Since March of this year, six cheetahs have lost their lives in the park. Three of the four cubs born to cheetah Jwala also passed away earlier this month. The reasons behind these deaths are being investigated.
Future Plans for the Cheetah Revival Program
To address the declining cheetah population in Kuno National Park, the government is actively exploring alternatives. The Gandhi Sagar Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh is being prepared as an alternative habitat for the cheetahs. Minister Yadav emphasized that the number of cheetahs in Kuno National Park is currently below its capacity, and efforts will be made to ensure the well-being and survival of these magnificent animals.
