Hope for Asian lion

Asian lions may be clinging to survival, with less than 500 left in the wild, but there is hope say The Zoological Society of London. The ZSL has launched a campaign, called Lions400, to try and secure the future of the ancient lion, which live in only one isolated Indian forest. Here they are easy prey for poachers, and just one forest fire or disease epidemic could wipe this ancient species of lion out for ever.

They have also outgrown their tiny pocket of forest and are increasingly having to wander into neighbouring areas where they risk being killed by trains, vehicles or frightened villagers.
