India's environment minister Jairam Ramesh said that bringing cheetahs back would help restore India's grasslands _ as villagers would no longer be cutting the grass to use as fodder _ and eventually help stabilize the populations of other endangered native species.
"The way the tiger restores the forest ecosystem, the snow leopard restores the mountain ecosystem, the Gangetic dolphin restores waters in the rivers, the cheetah will restore India's grasslands," Ramesh said.
