Expansion

In the Asola Bhati Wildlife Sanctuary in Delhi, the number of leopards has increased again. Currently, eight adult leopards live in the forest area of ​​32 square kilometers. Recently, the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) confirmed the birth of two cubs at the sanctuary. Experts say that if leopards had not fallen victim to road accidents, the population could have doubled. There are currently eight leopards here, while the same number of leopards have died in road accidents in the past 10 years. That is, the population is now 50 percent.

Located in the border area of ​​Delhi-Gurugram-Faridabad, this sanctuary has started to develop again as a birthplace for animals. Recently, after the birth of two female leopard cubs, the wildlife conservation initiative has sparked renewed hope. According to dr. Suhail Madan, deputy director of BNHS, there are eight leopards in the reserve.
