Nepal and India to work together in an effort to save tigers from poachers
Wildlife conservation authorities from Nepal and India have concluded that Bawaria and Banjara tribal communities in India pose key threat to tiger conservation, and decided to come up with measures to track down the poachers, monitor their activities and restrict their movement along the trans-boundary corridor. A dramatic surge in tiger poaching with cases of arrests and seizures of tiger skins and body parts in Nepal has triggered alarm bells in both the countries. Tiger conservation remained a key agenda of discussion between the wildlife officials from both the countries during the two-day trans-boundary meeting that ended in New Delhi on Tuesday.
