What is special about Gir National Park?

Gir National Park is the only location in Asia which provides safe haven for the Asiatic Lions. The Asiatic Lions were once spread throughout the continent but a combination of hunting and habitat destruction drastically reduced their numbers.

The ecosystem at the Gir National Park is protected as a result of the efforts of the government forest department, wildlife activists and NGOs.
