Now 12 cheetahs will be brought from SA to Kuno National Park, process started

Twelve more cheetahs are likely to be brought to the Kuno-Palpur National Park in Madhya Pradesh by the end of 2022. These cheetahs will be imported from South Africa. For this, a special enclosure is being arranged for new cheetahs in Kuno National Park. Madhya Pradesh Forest Department Chief Secretary Ashok Barnwal has said that discussions are currently in the initial stage for signing the MoU between South Africa and the Indian government in this regard. Once the agreement is reached, we will start the process of translocating the cheetahs. 

Uttam Sharma, the chief conservator of Kuno-Palpur National Park, said that a place has been identified to prepare quarantine enclosures for the 12 cheetahs to be brought from South Africa. He has said that we have also started purchasing materials to prepare these enclosures. We have experience in building six quarantine enclosures for 8 cheetahs from Namibia, through which it will take us less than 15 days to prepare enclosures for cheetahs to be brought from South Africa. 

Officials of the state's forest department say that the South African delegation is satisfied with the ground situation here. The delegation is expected to present a report to the South African government after reviewing the enclosures for cheetahs in Kuno Park. After this, the South African government will take a final decision on sending cheetahs to India after the meeting on October 4.
