Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future.

Bhainsrorgarh sanctuary to be 2nd home of cheetahs

BHOPAL: The Madhya Pradesh forest department is planning to fence off 
Gandhi Sagar Wildlife Sanctuary — Bhainsrorgarh Wildlife Sanctuary complex in Mandsaur district as a second home for cheetahs in the state.

Senior officers informed that the survey has been done and experts from African countries have visited this site. “A part of this area is being fenced. It will take at least a year to complete the work. It would be a second home for cheetahs then,” said a forest officer.

Among the ten surveyed sites in five central Indian States, Kuno Palpur National Park (KNP) in the State of Madhya Pradesh was rated high on the priority list for considering the introduction of the cheetah because of its suitable habitat and adequate prey base.

Action Plan for Introduction of Cheetah in India recommended sites for reintroduction of cheetah in India based on the 2010 surveys as well as recent assessments are Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary (1197 km2, habitat 5500 km2), Gandhi Sagar Wildlife Sanctuary – Bhainsrorgarh Wildlife Sanctuary complex (~2500 km2), Shahgarh bulge in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan (4220 km2), and Mukundara Tiger Reserve as fenced enclosure (~80 km2) for holding and conservation breeding of cheetah in controlled wild conditions.

Gandhi Sagar Wildlife Sanctuary and Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary in Sagar, have low prey base. The prey base at Gandhi Sagar will be augmented. 

Steps are being taken; officer informed. Officers informed that there is uncertainty over dates for arrival of 12 cheetahs from South Africa as MoU is pending
