Gir National Park is known for its bastion–the Asiatic Lions who roam in this region, believing that they are safe in this region. But, these beliefs do not always prove to be true all the time. At the turn of the 20th century, these wild beasts began to disappear who were found in large numbers roaming from Palestine to Palama and across West Asia and North India.
On a sad note, it is to be declared that they are the victims of shikar (hunting) expeditions by many Nawabs of the princely states and the British officials. After Independence, the Indian Government used several measures to abolish hunting and poaching of the Asiatic Lions in the Gir forest.
In the 21st Century, making education strength, we acknowledge everyone about the importance of the existence of wildlife animals, but unfortunately, we cannot. Many mischievous fellows are still engaged with this act of animal poaching, a way to earn money. The smuggling of valuable body parts to different nations is increasing day by day. Thus, to track this animal killing, the state government set up a high-tech gadget a few years back, in 2010.
They have come up with this idea because, in 2007, a shock wave blew across the entire region of Sasan Gir and also in the state. The lion population decreased to 359 In Gir Forest, and the reason was rapid poaching. Since then, they sought the invention of a tracker, which can alert the forest department by which they can catch the poachers in red hands. They had created this task poach, which will protect the lions from any ill-treatment.
After collaborating with many high technology companies, the state Government of Gujarat has created the task force to maintain high profile conservation and protection to the lions in Gir forest. Another initiative is to be taken from our side, to make people aware not to kill these innocent wild beasts as our existence depends on their survival. We are all dependent on each other, and we should respect each other’s existence.
