MUMBAI: Discovery Channel is all set to highlight the women forest guards, who are on a mission to preserve the endangered species of the Asiatic lions in the Gir National Park, in a series called The Lion Queens of India. 

 

Discovery Channel will premiere the four-part series on 28 September at 9 pm.

 

These courageous women risk their lives every day to rescue vulnerable lions, heal defenceless cubs, reduce human-animal conflict and assist villagers who face accidental animal attacks. The series highlights their unwavering commitment to preserve the lions and its habitat and offers an ode to their spirit and dedication.

 

The four-part series brings alive some of the most daring wildlife action sequences on television for the first time. From rescuing a lion stuck in an open well, healing a badly injured lioness with three little cubs in the middle of the night, retrieving a wayward leopard from a farmer?s house or catching and releasing a deadly Russell?s viper are all part of their daily job. 

 

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific EVP & GM ? South Asia Rahul Johri said, ?Discovery Channel recognises Indian women forest guards who are holding one of most dangerous and impactful professions. The Lion Queens of India captures an inspirational journey of skilled women team in the wild and highlights riveting real-life challenges they face during the course of their duty.?

 

The rescue team is headed by Junagadh Forest Division deputy conservator of forests Raj Sandeep, assisted by Trupti A. Joshi (in-charge range officer) and Rasila P. Vadher (in-charge rescue team). An exceptional 28 year old forest guard, Vadher, along with many other gallant women have carried out over 600 rescue missions last year ? perhaps amongst the highest number in any wildlife park in the world. 

 

The channel will also air the series on 5 October.
