Sonika the Asiatic lioness arrived at the Sanctuary with male Sahee in March 2023, they are currently a non-breeding pair. This fabulous couple are representing their species in captivity and we know they will be incredible ambassadors for the lesser known Asiatic lion sub-species.
The two lions travelled well and settled into their new environment very quickly. Sonika has been a little more reserved so far than Sahee, but this is to be expected. She has already within a week been seen outside relaxing with her partner. The Sanctuary has high hopes for this awesome pair in the future.
