About Gir Wildlife Sanctaury

Asiatic Lion, Gir Wildlife Sanctuary and National ParkThe Gir National Park last stronghold of the Asiatic Lion was the former private reserve of the Princely State of Junagadh. It was due to the efforts of the rulers of Junagadh that the last remaining population of this small pride of around 20 lions was saved from extinction. Today they are four independent populations of Asiatic Lions in and around Gir totaling around 275.

The park’s vegetation consists of Dry Teak and deciduous forest of Banyan, Jamun and Flame of Forest as well as scrub of Acacia. Gir’s ecosystem nurtures over 450 species of plants, around 350 species of birds, 32 mammal species and around 24 types of reptiles. Besides lions the park has a sizable population of Leopards with prey species like Chital,Sambhar , Blue Bull, Chausingha, Chinkara and Wild Boar. The smaller carnivores are Jungle Cat, Jackal and Striped Hyena.

The park is quite rich in bird life and Paradise Flycatcher, Black-headed Cuckoo, Grey Drongo, Pied Woodpecker, Coppersmith, Indian Roller, Crested Swift, Fish Owl, Shaheen Falcon, and Bonelli’s and Crested Serpent Eagle are some of birds seen on the trees. On the forest floor one can see Painted Sandgrouse, Rock Bush Quail, Grey Partridge.
