It’s no coincidence that Nepal is celebrating its own record-breaking rhinoceros population, while they’ve just achieved their second successful year of eliminating poaching within its borders.
As of May 2016, the country has gone two years in a row without any harm coming to the endangered species, tallying up to four years in total since 2011.
The conservation victory is credited to the effects of improved tracking technology of the creatures, rapid ranger response, and identifying poaching hot spots within national parks.
645 rhinos – the highest recorded number so far –are now currently living contentedly in Nepal thanks to these efforts.
