This article reports on the decision by India's Supreme Court which rejected a proposal by India's Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) to introduce 18 cheetahs from Namibia. The proposal was made by MOEF after it consulted renowned wildlife expert M. K. Ranjitsinh, U.S. geneticist Stephen O'Brien and Laurie Marker of Cheetah Conservation Fund. The Court rejected the proposal on the ground that no study has been done to establish merits of such a move.
