Sasan Gir National Park – A Wild Home Of The Asiatic Lions –
Apart from Africa, Sasan Gir National Park which is located in Gujarat is the only habitat of the Asiatic Lions in the world as only here you can find them roaming in a free state in the jungle. This ultimate place is situated to the South East part of Junagarh. In 1965, a large geographical area of the park was notified as the wildlife sanctuary for the conservation of the Asiatic Lions. The total area the park covers is 1412 sqkms of which 258 kms area belongs to the core National Park. Due to the indiscriminate hunting of the wildlife by locals of Junagarh, the population of the lions got decreased drastically. Though from rest of the parts in Asia, their existence is almost zero. With the generous efforts of Junagarh Nawabs, the lions have got protection in their hunting grounds. After few years, the officials of the forest department of India took this initiative to give protection of the most threatened wildlife species of the world. As recorded in 1913, the approximate population of Asiatic Lions was merely 20 lions, but now it is risen to 523 lions as per 2015 census. In total 523 lions, 106 are male, 201 are female and 213 are sub-adult lions.
