NEWSLINK: The Asiatic lion thrives in Gujarat’s Gir Forest Reserve

Pangolin defending itself from lions (Gir Forest, Gujarat, India).jpgIn Gujarat’s Gir Forest Reserve, the last home of the Asiatic lion, the big cats have been falling into open wells, running into electrified fences, getting hit by trains, and dying in other unnatural ways.

The deaths are, in an odd way, a measure of Gir’s success at conserving the lion.

The numbers have risen to such an extent that more and more lions are venturing outside the reserve’s protected areas. Nevertheless, Guin jarat has set about trying to find a way to minimise these unnecessary deaths.
