Community Based Elephant Conservation in Bardia-Banke Complex

Approximately 120 elephants and 87 tigers share the same habitat in Bardia National Park and the surrounding area in Nepal. Increasing incidents of human-elephant and human-wildlife conflict have caused crop losses, property damage, and human deaths, which then lead to retaliatory killings of elephants and tigers. Building on past IEF support, this project is mobilizing approximately 4600 students via 23 eco-clubs, supporting Rapid Response Teams, and teaching proper use of safety and prevention measures like electric barrier fences.
