It’s always heartwarming to come across a true story of wildlife conservation. Alarming disappearance of many precious wildlife species of flora and fauna from earth’s surface necessitate concerted, concentrated and devoted efforts to induce their conservation, protection and proliferation, such that our wildernesses are restored to the beautiful biodiversity they house. Gir National Park is one such story of continual efforts and ongoing success.
Gir National Park has become synonymous with Asiatic Lions, and for good reasons. Asiatic Lions who fell close to the brink of extinction due to rampant hunting by the British and Maharajas were saved by the conservationist efforts of Nawab of Junagadh and Bombay Natural History Society. Today, the forests of Gir National Park provides home to over 523 lions (as per survey in 2015). Apart from Lions, one will be able to spot Indian leopards, cobras, mongeese, honey badger, jackal along with sambar, chinkara, wild boar and black bucks inside the premises of the park.
