Publicity Notes

The thorny forests of Gir in Gujarat, India are the last and only strong hold of Panthera leo persica – the Asiatic Lion – a species who’s range once stretched West across Asia as far as Greece. Their numbers fell as low as twenty in 1900 but today the Gir is simply not big enough for their growing population. Increasingly lions are spreading out beyond the protection of the National Park - reclaiming lost territory and even colonising surprising new habitats. It’s a rare conservation success story but one that brings new challenges to lions, naturalists, forestry staff and the surrounding human populations. This is the story of The Last Lions of India.
