A national park in the Indian state of Gujarat is trying to help lions and other animals survive the country’s heatwave. The wildlife reserve has set up more than 450 artificial ponds by accessing groundwater or by filling them up using hand pumps. It comes as many parts of India are reeling from soaring temperatures, with parts of Orissa enduring its warmest March in decades.

  • Yeah man india is way too hot to live in i mean as a n indian even we get frustrated as how hot it is becoming recently. Heat strokes r becoming more common. If it was dry heat then i could endure but all this humidity and sweaty conditions is hella annoying.

  • Same is done in Bandhavgarh and some other wildlife reserves as well. As of now this is the best way to tackle the water problem. And they are using solar and wind powered pumps wherever possible so that's great!

  • India 🇮🇳 is the only country which has both lions and tigers in their natural habitat. These lions are the last of the Asiatic lions outside Africa. They're smaller than their African counterparts.

  • This March is the hottest march I've ever seen in my life. It felt like it's the month of may. That's why we need sustainable clean energy to stop climate change.

  • Tips : Birds love shallow containers (I used a chiller from an old fridge) so that they could drink and also be able to wet their feathers if they need.I have also kept a larger container for big birds to take a dip.Sparrows regularly visit everyday to drink and bath.They arrive in flocks.Bigger birds like crows and kites use the deeper water filled ones to wet their feathers.Keep it under shade otherwise the water temperature will rise due to direct sunshine. I live in kerala (India) and its hot and humid here.But it rains in the afternoon.

  • Its so funny that no one here has commented how this is all caused by climate change and that that is the real problem that we need to tackle so humans and animals don't have to die of heat strokes and dehydration.

  • Lions aren’t actually that dependent on water as they consume a lot of fluids from the animals they eat so this is kind of unnecessary but that’s India I guess

  • My hometown Baripada recorded that temp 44.6°C . That day the wind was blowing hot enough to feel it burning your face. And that was inside my room with a cooler at full speed. Did not have the courage to go outside. Would have been roasted, fried and steamed at the same time.
