MP wildlife sanctuary ready for Gir lions but Gujarat unrelenting
News 24 x 7
In order to conserve the single isolated population of Asiatic Lions, the Ministry of Environment and Forests had some time back initiated habitat feasibility study through the Wildlife Institute of India. The study has inter alia identified Kuno Palpur Wildlife Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh as an alternate home for the Gir Lions.
This would also be used for release of wild lions from Gujarat. But, according to the ministry of state for Environment and Forests, while the Madhya Pradesh government is agreeable for translocation of Gir Asiatic Lions in Kuno Palpur, Gujarat government has so far not cleared a proposal to part with Gir Asiatic Lions.
The matter is subjudice before Supreme Court of India in view of IA no. 100 in Writ Petition (Civil) 337/1995. There is no proposal to set up eight new Lion reserves in the country. This was informed by Jairam Ramesh, the minsiter, to a question by Bharatsinh Prabhatsinh Parmar in Rajya Sabha
