CHITWAN AND BARDIA NATIONAL PARKS :: NEPAL
Over five days in February 2016, five rhinos were moved from Chitwan National Park to a new home in Bardia National Park. Translocation is an important step in expanding rhino populations. Successful conservation efforts—including four 12-month spans of zero poaching since 2011—have resulted in Chitwan’s rhinos reaching the park’s carrying capacity, leaving little room for population expansion in that area. The solution: Move some to join the much smaller population in Bardia.
