Seven decades after they were formally proclaimed extinct, cheetahs enter the nation.
On September 17, the 72nd birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the cheetahs will be brought to India.
From Namibia, eight cheetahs travel to Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park.
The Kuno National Park has been prepared to receive the cheetahs, according to the Union Ministry of Forests and Environment. Narendra Modi will release the cheetahs into quarantine.
Cheetahs have disappeared, according to studies, as a result of habitat degradation, overhunting, and other factors.
In 1992, cheetahs were formally declared extinct.
Only three female and five male cheetahs are shipped to India.
The cheetahs will be released into a designated 740 square kilometre region after a 30-day quarantine.
Cheetahs have been attempted to be reintroduced to the nation ever since the 1970s.
Eight cheetahs were allowed to enter the nation according to a contract that Namibia and the national government signed in July.
To bring the cheetahs back, five-year thorough plans have been created.
For this, the Center will spend Rs 91 crore.
The cheetahs are flown in from Namibia on a specially chartered aircraft.
Jaipur will be reached by the plane on Saturday AM.
Then a chopper will transport them to the National Park.
