Savings Asia's Pride

A study carried out at Gir and published in 2018 by Saevus Magazine on the man-animal conflict as Asiatic Lion numbers increase in Gir National Park and its adjoining areas.
The main conclusions by HCMF were:1.That a small pride of 10-15 Asiatic lions should be introduced from outside Gir National Park to Kuno and should be tagged and monitored for one year.2.The Maldhari's from inside Gir should be shifted outside through generous resettlement schemes on a totally voluntary basis and a lion base should be developed inside the park which thrives primarily on wild prey rather than old discarded cattle of the Maldhari's.
