Three male rhinos in CNP shifted internally

Chitwan, March 19: Three male rhinos have been shifted to the eastern part of the Chitwan National Park (CNP) from the western areas. The decision to translocate the animals internally was promoted by an increasing number of rhinoceros in the CNP's western part.

According to CNP information officer, Ganesh Prasad Tiwari, two animals were picked up from Dibyapuri of Nawalparasi (Bardghat-Susta East) and released inside a community forest along the Kuchkuche buffer zone at Khairhani of east Chitwan. The animals aged around eight and 17 years.

Likewise, on Friday, a rhinoceros was brought from the Kawasoti area of Nawalpur to the east. The male rhino of around 28 years old was released in the east to Kasara.

As the number of rhinos has increased in the western part of the park, some of them are going to be internally transferred to the eastern part of the park.

A total of 60 human resources, including elephant mahouts, technical personnel, staff and , and elephants were deployed for the rhino relocation. The park is now preparing to transfer six rhinos internally. Rhinos over eight years old will be transferred, said Tiwari.

According to the latest count, Nepal is home to 752 rhinos. Of them, 694 rhinos are in Chitwan National Park. Likewise, 38 rhinos are in Bardiya national park and 17 in Shuklaphanta national park. There are three rhinos in Parsa National Park.
