Even while fighting a legal battle in the Supreme Court, the Gujarat Government, with the support of the Centre, is currently engaged in developing a second “interpretation zone” to enable the visitors to see Asiatic Lions in the wild at its only abode in the Gir sanctuary in the Saurashtra region.

A forest department official said the second “interpretation zone”, a fenced area within the sanctuary, was being developed near Ambardi village in Amreli district on the way to the tourist destination of Diu.
