A New Home for Leopards in Aravalli

Standard

The much neglected leopards will soon have a territory for themselves in Rajasthan. Living on the periphery of the forests and always evasive when the much more glamorized tiger is around, the leopard or panther will be the king at least in the 30 sq km terrain in the Aravallis in Rajasthan’s Pali district, when the Jawai Bandh leopard conservation reserve finally takes shape.

The proposed leopard haven will be the first of its kind in the State. The reserve taken up under “Endangered Species Recovery and Promotion of Eco-tourism”, stands no far from the better known Kumbhalgarh and the Tedgarh  Raoli Sanctuaries.

The State  minister for environment and forest Bina Kak ensured a 100% leopard sighting to all those who visits the areas near Jawai Bandh.
