INDIA'S LARGEST LEOPARD SAFARI OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IN BENGALURU




India's largest and third leopard safari was thrown open to the public on Wednesday at Bannerughatta Biological Park (BBP) on the outskirts of Bengaluru. Karnataka Forest minister Eshwar Khandre inaugurated the leopard safari that has been uniquely designed to suit the environs of Bannerughatta. Currently, eight leopards have been released into the safari and according to officials, the numbers of leopards are expected to go up in the coming days.

The BBP, which is 30 kms from Bengaluru, already has Lion, Tiger, Sloth Bear and Herbivore Safari as part of its ex-situ conservation programme along with a zoo and rescue centre. In fact, the BBP has the largest concentration of carnivore animals among any zoos of India. The leopard safari has been developed on a 20-hectare area at a cost of Rs 4.5 crore and secured with railway barricades all around. The entire safari enclosure is covered by 4.5 metre height chain-link mesh and a 4.5-meter height flat rolled mild steel sheet at 30-degree inclination above the mesh to ensure leopards don’t stray out of the enclosure.
