Asiatic Lions have found their ideal home in Gir

Asiatic Lions- Gir Forest National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary
In the early 1900s, the population of Asiatic Lions in the princely state of Junagadh had reduced to only 15 due to hunting. This became a great concern for the ruler of Junagadh, who began conservation efforts for the protection of these endangered species. After the independence of India, Junagadh became a part of Gujarat state.

Population of these lions grew significantly with the establishment of Gir Forest National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary by the government in 1965. Besides lions, many of the animal species can be found in the wildlife reserve, such as, Indian Leopard, Sloth Bear, Striped Hyena, Golden Jackal, and Desert Cat. Every year, leisure tourists and wildlife enthusiasts book their accommodation in Gir National Park resorts to explore the abundant flora and fauna of this region. They also get the opportunity to tour some of the popular places of interest around Gir during their stay in these resorts.

Although the national park and sanctuary of Gir does not have a designated area for visitors, an Interpretation Zone has been made available for tourists within the wildlife reserve.
It has helped in reducing the harmful effects of tourism on Gir's wildlife and in promoting nature education among visitors.
