Endangered Species in Nepal

The Chitwan National Park is home to some of Nepal’s most endangered species. In some cases, it is the only refuge they may get. One of the last populations of the One-Horned Asian Rhinoceros lives within the forest, while the dense forest may be the last hunting grounds for the Bengal Tiger.

Eden Reforestation Projects has partnered with Chitwan National Park since 2015, helping to restore the surrounding forests and to create natural buffer zones. Below is a list of some endangered species that call Nepal home:
