In this way, Project Lion will also be launched. They are also called Asiatic lions. Under this, emphasis will be placed on research to prevent diseases including expanding areas where lions are present.

At present, lions are found only in the Gir Sanctuary of Gujarat in the country. However, as a project, it was planned to keep them in some places besides Gir. Among them is the Kuno-Palpur Sanctuary of Madhya Pradesh.

At present, this number is around three thousand. Whereas in 2006 their number was only 14 hundred. The Ministry believes that if a similar focus campaign was conducted for lions and dolphins, they would be protected.

It would also be fine to say here, preparations are being made to resettle Cheeto along with it in the country. Which are completely out of the country at the moment. A committee under the supervision of the Supreme Court is working fast on this.
