Accordint to Lead Ranger Kelly Lambe the Asian lion species is endangered and now inhabits only one remaining site in the world – the Gir Forest, in India.

It means that wildlife parks and zoos play a crucial role in safeguarding the species and maintaining the genetic diversity outside of the wild population.
