Nepal is doing its best to recover the rhino population from the brink of extinction. However, there is always risk of poaching and habitat destruction. The recent census has recorded over 750 greater one-horned rhinos and 90% of them are concentrated in and around the Chitwan National Park. The recent electrocution of two rhinos by poachers and one rhino died in under-construction roadside ditch tells the increasing risk for rhinos. This project aims to explore the current safeguard measures for the rhinos and their habitat, including environmental impact assessments of the developmental plans in the region. Also, help local authorities and communities to strengthen co-existence with rhinos.
