Cheetahs, native to Africa, are poised for a comeback in Gujarat’s Banni grassland, following the approval of a proposal by the central government for the establishment of a cheetah conservation breeding center in the Kutch District.

Announcing the development on social media, Mr. Mulu Bera, Gujarat’s Minister for Forest and Environment, declared, “Gujarat will become a home to cheetah one more time.”

The project’s primary objective is to reintroduce cheetahs to their historical habitat in the Banni Grassland. Encompassing an expansive 2,500 sq km in Gujarat’s Kutch district, Banni stands out as one of India’s finest and largest grasslands. This protected forest area is interspersed with 52 villages and is renowned for the prized Banni breed of buffaloes.
