As you might know, there are two main subspecies of lions extant today. One is the African Lion - members of which number in thousands and who you see almost daily in documentaries and programs on nature channels. The other, less well known, subspecies is the Asiatic Lion. Not many are aware of these lions, who number in a few hundreds and are seldom seen on television or in zoos owing to their extremely limited population. These are the lions whose plight I want to highlight today.
