The project was aimed at benefiting global cheetah conservation efforts by providing up to 100 000 km/square of habitat to the cheetahs. The plan also aimed at providing an additional 600 000 km/square of habitable landscape for the species.

The two cubs which died barely two months after their birth, took the death toll to six according to a report by the Times Of India. According to the preliminary reports, the cause of death was malnutrition.
