Location

Gir Forest is known all over the world as the last abode of the majestic Asian lion (Panthera Leo Persica), being the only place in the whole world where Asian lions are found in their natural habitat. The park takes pride in saving this endangered species which in 1913 was on the verge of extinction, with no more than 20 of them left.

With tremendous efforts and care by the forest department and support from the locals, Gir Sanctuary is now home to 650 Asian lions as per the latest census in 2017.

The total area of Gir Forest is 1882.6 square kilometers, of which 470.5 kilometers of forest area forms a reserve buffer zone, protected and unclassified, while the remaining 1412.1 square kilometers (1153.4 square kilometers as sanctuary and 258.7 square kilometers as national park) have been declared protected area by the government of Gujarat.

The rich and diverse flora and fauna makes Gir Forest a stable ecosystem with tremendous regenerating, self-supporting, and sustaining power.

Around 507 plant species have been recorded in Gir Forest, which consist of trees, shrubs, herbs, climbers, and grasses. The unique ecosystem of Gir also harbors about 38 species of mammals, 37 species of reptiles, around 300 species of birds, and more than 2000 species of insects.

Most of the birds found in Gir Forest are resident birds, meaning they don’t migrate to other regions. Gir has been declared an important bird area by the Indian Bird Conservation Network. Gir Forest is also the habitat of critically endangered white-backed and long-billed vultures.

Some of the typical birds of Gir are the crested serpent eagle, changeable hawk eagle, the Bonelli’s eagle, red-headed vulture, brown fish owl, Eurasian eagle owl, the pygmy woodpecker, the jungle bush quail, black-hooded oriole, the crested treeswift, and the Indian pitta.
