ZSL has today pledged its support to the Gujarat Government in a bid to save the critically endangered Asiatic lion from extinction.
“This is a major milestone for ZSL’s Lions400 campaign, which aims to raise funds to carry out vital conservation work in the wild as well as create Land of the Lions, a state-of-the-art Asiatic lion home and breeding centre at ZSL London Zoo.”
