Rhinos on the Move

Client: WWF Nepal

 Five Greater one-horned rhinos found a new home in Bardia National Park through a successful translocation expedition from Chitwan National Park in Nepal’s Terai Arc Landscape on 1-5 March 2016. This is part of a larger effort to move 30 rhinos to Bardia National Park (25 rhinos) and Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve (5 rhinos) through 2018. 

The expedition is an important step towards creating a second viable population in the western complex of TAL comprising Bardia National Park and Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve, with the broader goal to bring back rhino numbers to its historical size of 800 in Nepal.
