Less than 500 Asiatic lions remain in the Gir Forest, their last natural habitat. With your help, we've been able to support local conservation work in the Gir and are now creating a world leading breeding centre at ZSL London Zoo, the Land of the Lions, to help ensure a future for these magnificent animals.
If you'd like to support the work we're doing and share your passion for wildlife, why not become a ZSL Wildlife Champion for just £3 a month... http://www.zsl.org/champions.
