If you've reached this page through interest in our project
work I hope you can understand why this Home Page has
been published in response to the crisis here in Nepal.  We
have pulled down the original site and will run this site in
simplified form during the crisis.  You can go direct to my
blog
Here and my Facebook page Here where I will update
as much as possible.  Below are updates regarding R2A
and the core team I am using for our projects in Nepal.

We are currently providing aid to an area in the Gorkha
region near the epicentre of 7.8 quake on 25 April. A web
page dedicated to R2A is under construction.

UPDATE 17/06/15
Initially Medical and food supplies were distributed in the
area acting as an urgent response to regional Health Post
Officer Suresh Dawadi.  A Needs Assessment regarding
Epidemic Prevention was carried out and two health teams
were deployed to the area.  My thanks to the Sanjiwani
Health Team for their help in the initial deployment and the
International team assembled for the second deployment.
Ongoing support from the Ghandruk VDC and ACAP as well
as international aid is made this possible. At ground level
we worked in collaboration with various others organizations
including the Nepal Army.
Our emphasis from this point is
on urgent needs within the area of operation.  We are
currently building a school in Simjung in a valley very near
the quake epicentre at Barpark.


Chiran Khadka has been a supporter of WildTiger for
many years and now joins us in an organizational capacity
for school building.
With the current earthquake crisis Chiran is using his all
round skills to good use at a time when Nepal needs an
organized and rational approach.




Bidhya Sharma is a young wildlife biologist in the making
and is currently undergoing fauna studies within the context
of
Project Mountain Tiger as well as research for the
Leopard Rewilding Program.
While she may be the youngest in our core team her
enthusiasm and energy are great assets for WildTiger.
Bidhya has a passion for wild cats and a genuine concern
for the conservation of these species in Nepal.











Bindu Adhikari is vet student whose aim is to specialize in
wildlife treatment and study.  Bindu played an integral part
in the initial monitoring of Asa, the first cub in the
Leopard
Rewilding Program.  WildTiger sees a bright future for Bindu
in the formation of Rescue and Rewilding facilities here in
Nepal.  Like many of the team Bindu's passion is big cats
but she has already shown a lot of versatility in her practical
work.  Bindu is currently assisting in the rewilding of two new
leopard cubs, Tika and Ram.






Som G.C. is an internationally recognized birding guide who
has assisted WildTiger on various projects since late 2010.  
His passion for and knowledge of avian species throughout
South Asia is without peer. Som is to play an integral part in
our COME BACK TO NEPAL campaign in which his birding
and wildlife skills can help present the incredible biodiversity
in this country.

Som has shown commendable commitment over the years
in the monitoring of the illegal trade in birds and other
species.

Som can be contacted at: ibisbill@aol.com





Hemant Acharya is based in west Nepal at Bardia National
Park where he is the leader of the Community Based Anti-
Poaching team.  Hemant's background is described in the

Om Prasad Legacy
and he has been recognized nationally
on several occasions for his anti-poaching and other
conservation work. Hemant is currently also busy helping
with the planning and preparation of the Wildlife Rescue
and Rewilding Centre which will be based around our work
with big cats.  Hemant's ability in mobilizing and motivating
teams is invaluable for WildTiger and he will also be playing
a role in our COME BACK TO NEPAL campaign
