As the Indian population continues to grow, the pressure increases on all three big cats. All three species have problems of their own, such as the threat from inbreeding and disease for the Asiatic Lions of Gir, poaching and habitat loss for the tiger, and man-animal conflict and poaching for the leopard. Development and conservation have to be planned simultaneously if these cats are to be given a chance of survival.
