CNP launches joint operation with NA to protect wildlife

- Post Report, Chitwan

Jun 6, 2016-

The success of zero rhino poaching programme for two consecutive years has encouraged the Chitwan National Park (CNP) to replicate similar results in the conservation of other animals.

To that end, the park authority and the Nepal Army (NA) launched a joint conservation operation on Sunday, on the occasion of World Environment Day. The joint operation is expected to help the park authority in ensuring optimum wildlife security and improving its response mechanism whenever the animals are in need of rescue or medical emergency.

Madhav Thapa, the chief of NA’s Shreejung Battalion inside the park, said a state of the art  operation room has been set up to oversee the patrol and to verify information between the park officials and the NA. The operation room was inaugurated by Chief of Army Staff Rajendra Chhetri.

Thapa added that the use of modern surveillance and communication technologies would help them a great deal in patrolling and protecting wildlife.
