South India’s First Leopard Safari Opens at Bannerghatta

South India’s first and largest leopard safari has opened at Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP) in Bengaluru, Karnataka. Inaugurated by Environment Minister Eshwar Khandre, the 20-hectare safari mimics the natural habitat of leopards, featuring rolling hills, rocky outcrops, and deciduous woods. Built at a cost of ₹4.5 crore, it includes safety measures like a 4.5-meter high chain-link mesh and MS sheets angled at 30°. The park houses 14 leopards, with 8 released into the safari. The initiative aims to raise awareness about human-animal conflicts and promote conservation through educational efforts and afforestation.
