Leopard population increases by 60 per cent in the country

@PrakashJavdekar
Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar today released the Status of Leopard in India 2018 report. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Javadekar announced that India now has 12,852 leopards. He said, more than 60 per cent increase has been recorded in the leopard population over the previous estimate which was conducted in 2014.
  
Mr Javadekar remarked that monitoring of the tiger in India has clearly shown its umbrella role in the ecosystem, which has shed light on other charismatic species like the Leopard. He said, the increase in Tiger, Lion and Leopards numbers over the last few years is a testimony to the conservation efforts and of the fledgling wildlife and biodiversity of the country.
