International Women’s Day

 I am woman, hear me roar!

March 8th is International Woman’s Day, a day that recognizes and celebrates the achievements of women, and highlights the inequalities that women still face. This month, xyza celebrates the astounding accomplishments of a group of women-led forest guards in India.

The Gir National Park in India is home to exotic wild animals like the Asiatic Lion but what makes this forest unique are the people who lead the maintenance and protection of the animals in this area — it is a team of 46 women! They care for sick lions, nurture baby animals, and protect the animals from being hunted. We think these Lion Women of India are pretty awesome, don’t you?
