Project Cheetah: India eagerly awaits the arrival of Cheetah
The nation is waiting to celebrate the arrival of cheetahs from Africa.
Most of us may have never seen a cheetah as it went extinct from India about 70 years ago.
Attempts to re-introduce Asiatic cheetahs failed as Iran turned down India’s request.
And after over 12 years of negotiations, the governments of Namibia and India finally signed a pact this year.
Namibia has agreed to send 50 cheetahs to India over the next five years.
From Jaipur, they will be flown in a helicopter to Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh– where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will release them the same day.
