Tweeted by narendramodi
Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has described the 29 percent rise in population of Asiatic lions in the Gir forests as a conservation success. In a tweet, Mr Javadekar expressed happiness that the population of the majestic Lion increased by almost 29 percent and distribution area is up by 36 percent. He said multiple strategies, interventions and community participation were major contributors to the current conservation success of the Indian lions.
