About Kuno national park

The Project Cheetah authorities have reached an in-principle decision to shift surplus cheetahs from Kuno national park to Gandhi Sagar wildlife sanctuary after the monsoon. At present, Kuno has 26 cheetahs, including 13 cubs and sub-adults.

The Gandhi Sagar Wildlife Sanctuary is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary located on the northern boundary of Mandsaur and Nimach districts in Madhya Pradesh, India. Established in 1974, it encompasses an area of 368.62 square kilometers (142.32 sq mi) bordering Rajasthan state.

  • The Chambal River, a significant tributary of the Yamuna River, cuts through the sanctuary, dividing it into roughly equal western and eastern sections.
  • The western section falls within Nimach district, while the eastern section is part of Mandsaur district. The Gandhi Sagar Dam, constructed on the Chambal River, is situated within the sanctuary and forms the massive Gandhi Sagar Lake.
  • The sanctuary falls within the Khathiar-Gir dry deciduous forests ecoregion, characterized by a varied terrain of wooded hills, dry mixed deciduous forests, and flat grasslands bordering the Gandhi Sagar Lake.
  • This diverse habitat provides shelter and sustenance to a rich variety of wildlife.
