Swamp Deer Switching Grounds

Client: WWF Nepal

 Five swamp deer were successfully translocated to Bardia National Park (BNP) from Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve in Nepal’s Terai Arc Landscape on 27 May – 2 June 2016. With the support from USAID funded Hariyo Ban Program together with the Government of Nepal, the translocation expedition was carried out to enhance genetic robustness of the remnant population of BNP; and establish a viable population of Swamp Deer.
