The Last Lions of IndiaThis documentary is about Asiatic lions, which are completely different from African lions in both appearance and behavior but are thriving in India.

Their refuge is the Gir forest in Gujarat, and in the last 100 years their numbers have grown from 20 to over 300.

These lions are now spreading out beyond the protection of the National Park, reclaiming lost territory and colonizing new habitats.

It's a rare conservation success story but one that brings new challenges to lions, naturalists and forestry staff.

More great documentaries

It's both sad and disturbing to know that as I watch this, there are people out there, somewhere, that have no appreciation for this environment and would like to destroy it and build buildings and roads and stores.

Lions in India? You learn something new every day.

The British shot most of India's tigers, so I hope nobody blames Indians for that tragedy.

Hmm. All india needs to do now is save the tigers aswell. If it does that, i will love it for all time. Granted there are diffuculties. Thats why i sent a letter of support to their minister. XD

Compared to last year, this year we have developed 2.6 % more forest, today we stand in 22% forest against land mass, thanks to all the people who involved in this, our constitution objective is to reach 33% I hope to see this happening in my life time.

interbreeding among the same population can trigger genetic diseases. these lions populations should be split and introduce into different parts of the country.
