Eight African cheetahs to land in Jaipur on Friday-
✓8 cheetahs from Namibia will depart from the capital Windhoek in a chartered flight and land in Jaipur this week.
● Relocating cheetahs:
✓They will be transported in a helicopter to the Kuno National Park (KNP).
✓They will be released into a dedicated, ‘quarantine enclosure’ under the watch of the PM.
✓The Kuno National Park can support up to 20 cheetahs and with restoration this number can go up to 40 individuals.
● Protection to Cheetahs:
✓Cheetahs will initially be in quarantine enclosures for about a month and then moved to 6-square kilometre predator-proof, holding facilities.
✓This enclosure will also host live prey.
✓In a few months, the cheetahs will be released into the wild.
✓Radio collared to track their movements via GPS
