Please sign and share this petition worldwide in an effort to encourage the Government of Gujarat not to infringe on the lion's natural habitat with illegal structures. Doing so is causing a displacement of the animals, harming them and the humans that will be residing in these buildings.

A letter was presented to the Gujarat High Courts regarding the proposed construction of illegal structures that would provide housing and hotels for guests. The proposal is to construct these buildings in and around the eco-fragile Gir sanctuary that is home to the Asiatic lions. This high court is asking the state government to clear out all these structures and to do so by March 5th.

Also under investigation is the protected forest areas that are located in the Amreli district in the Saurashtra region of the state. The Gir sanctuary is the only healthy residence for the Asiatic lions and caused great concern for the Gujarat High Courts when they received the anonymous letter informing them of all these illegal structures. As stated in the recent news, this letter in question also expressed the apprehension that the proliferation of the illegal structures and further creation of the tourism zone could enhance the fragility of the lion corridor, their habitat and existence.

We are asking for your help through this petition, signing and sharing it worldwide on all media sites in an attempt to stop any construction of illegal structures that is infringing on the Gir sanctuary and any of their habitat. Our goal is to speak volumes to the Gujarat Government State and halt all construction of illegal structures that is infringing on the lion habitat.




Gujarat State Government - Along with the members of the High Courts, we are urging you to remove all current illegal structures that infringes on and around the Gir Lion Sanctuary. In Addition to removing the current illegal structures that would provide housing and hotels for guests, stop any further proposed construction at the eco-fragile Gir Lion sanctuary and the protected forest areas that are located in the Amreli district in the Saurashtra region of the state.
