Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister, stated on Sunday that the translocation of cheetahs from Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh will increase tourism in the Chambal area.


State tourism would improve from the reintroduction of cheetahs, according to CM Chouhan. In order to teach the locals who have been uprooted and relocated to other areas so they may serve as guides and find jobs in the tourism industry, he said, “We are also operating a skill centre.”


I once again appreciate Bhupendra Yadav Ji and his colleagues since this will likely become the most well-known location in the world for wildlife tourism, he continued.

The proprietor of Jungle Resort Near KUNO, Jinesh Jain, told the media that since word of the government’s plan to reintroduce cheetahs to the area spread, tourist activities have already ramped up and some eager travellers have begun to book reservations in advance.


A large tourist rush is anticipated in the future, and the tourism business has a promising future, Jinesh Jain told the media. “Earlier there is no such tourist rush but these days not only have people started visiting here but also booking begins for the next 6 months,” he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 17, will launch the “Reintroduction of the Cheetah” initiative at Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur district.

In the state’s woods, PM Modi will also release cheetahs that have been transported from Africa. After being declared extinct in 1952, the large cat species will be reintroduced to India.


The National Museum of Natural History also reports to the Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change, having regional offices in Mysore, Bhubaneswar, Bhopal, and Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan. Its headquarters are in New Delhi.


The reintroduction of wild animals, in particular the cheetah, is being carried out under the ambitious Project Cheetah initiative of the Indian government in accordance with IUCN recommendations.

The government has launched the ambitious Project Cheetah with the goal of reintroducing the animal to its former habitat in the nation. India has a long tradition of protecting animals. Project Tiger, one of the most effective efforts to conserve wildlife, was started back in 1972 and has helped to preserve not just tigers but also the ecosystem as a whole.
