The leopards of Bera in Rajasthan have been living in harmony with humans for decades.This village in Rajasthan continues to script an unusual story of mutual love and respect between leopards and human beings.
A closer look at a world in Bera, Rajasthan where people share a spiritual connection with leopards and man-animal conflict is largely absent.
Forty years ago, half a dozen of these leopards had descended from the nearby Kumbhalgarh National Park nestling in the Aravalli Hills and into the rocky mountains of Bera looking for browner pastures. Though it was the village of Bera that caught the imagination of nature lovers for the unusual sight of leopards walking elegantly on rocky slopes, there are actually over a dozen leopard sites that surround Bera in a radius of 10 km. And this area is known as Jawai Leopard Conservation Zone(A must visit place for any wildlife enthusiast).
