For being designated as a Leopard Reserve, Jhalana Reserve will be upgraded using a multi-crore budget, which will include building an outer periphery wall.

This project will be launched in the first week of October, which is also celebrated as the Wildlife Week.

Other than conserving leopards by proving them natural habitats, this Project also aims to end human-leopard conflicts and saving their population.
