Yuvi to be mascot for Sanjay Gandhi National Park

Nikhil Advani’s upcoming stereoscopic 3D animated film Delhi Safari has hit a new high. The film is the story of a leopard cub, who along with his bandwagon, decides to go to Delhi and protest in front of the parliament against forest encroachment.


The social message in the film rings loud and clear, and now Yuvi, the leopard cub will be seen at the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP). Sunil Limaye, Chief Conservator of Forests & Director SGNP, has decided to make the leopard cub the park’s mascot. Sources say that Yuvi will now be seen on hoardings in the park, and that this might just help save the forest.


Confirming the same, Sunil says, “The leopard cubs in SGNP share the same problem as Yuvi does in the film. The National Park is their rightful home and it is being encroached on from time to time. It is sad that because of the constant conflict between man and animals, the leopards in our park are getting killed and their lives are in constant danger. I just thought Yuvi could be our mascot and bring focus to the problems faced by his real community.”


“All the animals in the park face issues like loitering, noise and constant encroachment. In the past, we have tried putting banners with photographs of real animals, but that has never interested people. Perhaps having little Yuvi there will make them more aware,” adds Sunil.
