The Asiatic lion (Panthera leo persica), also known as the Indian lion or Persian lion, is a lion subspecies that exists as a single population in India‘s Gujarat state. It is listed as Endangered by IUCN due its small population size. Since 2010, the lion population in the Gir Forest National Park has steadily increased.
In May 2015, the 14th Asiatic Lion Census was conducted over an area of about 20,000 km2 (7,700 sq mi); the lion population was estimated at 523 individuals, comprising 109 males, 201 females and 213 cubs. Hopefully this increasing trend can continue.
