Tiger population count begins nationwide
The government on Monday launched a three-month-long count of tigers across the country, officials said.
As part of the programme, tiger population is being counted simultaneously in all reserves: Chitwan National Park, Bardiya National Park, Sukhlaphanta Wildlife Reserve and Parsa Wildlife Reserve and the adjoining Chiuriya range. The Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) said that the census would help make data on tigers more uniform and standardised. Nepalnews.com
