Leopards in India UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • The survey covered 20 States of India, and focused on about 70% of the animals’ expected habitat, which are India’s tiger reserves and protected forest areas. 

  • Unlike tigers, which are largely confined to forest reserves, leopards are far more adaptable and tend to be found in significant numbers, in villages and sometimes, even in cities

  • They are also known to prey on cattle and thus be involved in conflict, resulting in higher mortality.

Highest number of leopards were reported in?

  • India’s leopard numbers rose by 8% from 12,852 in 2018 to 13,874 in 2022, according to a report made public by the Environment Ministry on Thursday.

  • While the highest number of leopards were reported in Madhya Pradesh (3,907), only three other States reported over 1,000 animals each — Maharashtra (1,985), Karnataka (1,879) and Tamil Nadu (1,070). 

  • While Uttarakhand reported a 22% decline in the big cat numbers — reportedly due to poaching and man-animal conflict, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and West Bengal saw a collective 150% rise to 349 animals.
