NEPAL’S WILD ELEPHANTS ARE ALSO ON THE MOVE

June 13, 2021

Conservation success means tigers and elephants are using jungle corridors for annual monsoon migration.

Before Covid-19 and lockdowns I would be guiding tourists around Bardia National Park this time of year. But the pandemic has meant empty homestays along the Khata Wildlife Corridor that connects wilderness areas in India and Nepal.

Local villages may have lost their income from eco-tourism, but the absence of people during the lockdown means that wild animals have reclaimed their space.
