The Tiger census is being carried out in Nepal on the 5th of December.
The national event to be led by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation will be launched from the Chitwan National Park.
Five parks across the country currently serve as habitats for endangered animal-tiger. The census will cover Chitwan, Bardiya, Parsa, Shuklaphanta, and Banke National Parks and adjoining forests.
The previous tiger census conducted in 2018 put the number of adult tigers at 2 hundred and 35 in Nepal. In the 2010 Global Conference, Nepal had pledged to double the number of tigers from 121 to 250 by 2022.
