Chitwan, March 19

Three male rhinos have been shifted to the eastern part of the Chitwan National Park from the western areas. The decision to translocate the animals internally was promoted by an increasing number of rhinoceros in the park’s western part.

According to the park’s 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. 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.
