Nepal Government earmarks NRs 60 Million for the Conservation of Tigers

Posted Apr 28th, 2011 under Wildlife & Bird Watching,

Nepal’s Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation (MoFSC) has finalized a plan for the conservation of tigers that involves a budget of Rs. 60 million. This maybe the biggest investment by the government of Nepal for the conservation of a single endangered species. This is understandable as the nation has pledged to double its population of tigers by the year 2022. Tiger habitats have been found at Chitwan National Park, Bardia National Park, Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve , Parsa Wildlife Reserve and Banke National Park. The allocated amount will be spent through National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) under the coordination of the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC). Fifty million will be spent inside the park whereas 10 million will be set aside for the management of forests (also the potential tiger habitat) outside the park area.
