CHITWAN — The Chitwan National Park on Sunday completed two years of zero rhino poaching.

A one-horn rhino was last killed on May 2, 2014, which is the last recorded poaching in the Park.The Park has then recorded no incident of poaching of the rare wildlife including one-horned rhino and tiger to date.

The Park attributed a modern and scientific security strategy to the success in marking zero poaching years for the second consecutive time.

The Park records show that the fiscal year 2001/02 was the most violent for its one-horned rhinos as 37 of them were killed in the year.

According to CNP Assistant Conservation Officer Nurendra Aryal, a total of 172 rhinos were killed between 2055-56 and 2070-71 while the number of rhinos that died from natural causes in this period was counted at 212.

The overall data suggest that most poaching occurred in the decade-long armed conflict, 1996-2006.

The Park’s Chief Conservation Officer Ram Chandra Kandel said cooperation from the Park staff, Nepal Army and Nepal Police resulted into the significant achievement.

Kandel said that Nepal Army, Park staff, Nepal Police as well as networks of people assigned to inform about the criminal activities have been mobilised at various layers.

Likewise, the World Wildlife Fund and many non-government organisations have been assisting the Park to conserve animals, according to the official.
