New Home for Asiatic Lions in Gujarat Only.

Translated from - Gujarati Daily

New home for Asiatic Lions:

There was a meeting at Rampara Vidi (Grass Land) 20 KM far from Wakaner city. In the meeting, Mr. Tanna, C. C. F. of Gandhinagar , Mr. Bharat Pathak C. C. F. of Junagadh and Mr. Kadivar C. C. F. of Aanand Wild Life Division plus D. F. O. from Jamnagar and Junagadh plus Mr. Vasani A. C. F., Rajkot Veterinary Doctor form Anand was present.

In initial stage officials decided to shift ONE PAIR OF ASIATIC LION at RAMPARA VIDI (GRASS LAND) including Pairs of DEER, CHINKARA and other wild life animals.

Near Forest Building at Rampar, planning to build 7 fencing, each in 1-hector area. So they can keep eye on it, if there is any disorder in animal’s routine life.

As there is very good rain in this monsoon all the 35 check dams full of water and there is a very big lake inside Rampara Vidi (Grass Land), so in the summer no problem for animals.

Shree Digvijaysinhji – Wakaner Maharana who was Envirment Minister of Gujarar State and Local forest staff of Wakaner did the good move for the same.

Step by step 6 pair going to be shifted at Ramapara Vidi and if things works out, something same implimentd at Barada Forest, Jasadan Vidi and near by Mount Girnar.

So it is good news as Asiatic Lions on the way to their new home within the Saurashtra, Gujarat.
