Good News rolls out for the Cheetah Rehabilitation Project.

NTCA has finally approved & sanctioned 14 Cheetahs, brought from Namibia,  to be relocated to Kuno Palpur National Park in Madhya Pradesh by end of Nov ‘2021.

This is indeed history in making as the country will witness Cheetahs roaming freely in the wild after 73 years.

Archive images of the last three Asiatic cheetahs (on record) shot dead in Surguja district, Madhya Pradesh, Central India, now the state of Chattisgarh, along with the Maharajah Ramanuj Pratap Singh Deo who reportedly shot them down at night, circa 1948 as reported in the Journal of Bombay Natural History Society by his private secretary. The Asiatic Cheetah has never been recorded in India after this.

The Indian Government declared Cheetahs extinct in India in 1952.
