The Asiatic cheetah, which was declared extinct in India over 70 years ago due to hunting and habitat loss, has returned to the county via a rehabilitation programme. Eight cheetahs–three males and five females–were brought from Namibia under Project Cheetah, the first transcontinental large carnivore translocation project. The cheetahs were brought to India in a customised cargo plane on September 17. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who celebrated his 72nd birthday on the same day, released the cheetahs into enclosures in Kuno National Park, Madhya Pradesh.
