Nepal tiger numbers

We’ve received several inquiries regarding the non-publication by the Government of Nepal of the results of the recent tiger census.  We’ll bring a summary of statements in due course.  There is considerable concern that there has been a significant drop in numbers.  Coupled with recent controversy regarding rhino poaching incidents during a claimed zero-poaching year plus continuing leopard body parts seizures (added to reported drops of leopard numbers in different parts of the country) there’s no doubt Nepal faces serious issues in wildlife conservation in general.
