Seventh cheetah released into the wild in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park (KNP).

One more cheetah has been successfully released into the wild in Madhya Pradesh’s Kuno National Park (KNP), nearly eight months after it was brought to India, an official said. She was kept in “hunting pens” in the park.

“Neerva, a three-and-a-half-year-old female cheetah from South Africa, was released into the wild from a larger enclosure at KNP late on Sunday,” said KNP Field Director Uttam Kumar Sharma.

On September 17 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the first batch of eight cheetahs from Namibia into a quarantine enclosure at KNP as part of efforts to revive the population of the species in India. Later, on February 18 this year, 12 cheetahs were brought from South Africa to the national park. Seven cheetahs have so far been released into the wild, with 10 still housed in larger enclosures.

Cheetah Jwala, who was relocated from Namibia, gave birth to four cubs at KNP this March. Three of the cubs died earlier this month.

In addition to these cubs, three of the 20 adult cheetahs relocated from South Africa and Namibia died in KNP. However, experts say that “the survival rate of cheetahs in Africa is very low”.
