Plans are for the relocation effort to run until 2018. The goal, ultimately, is to resettle 30 rhinos in Bardia and the Shuklaphanta reserve from their present home in Chitwan National Park. That will do two things: Replenish the former two regions' rhino populations and also ease those of Chitwan, which is at capacity for the animal.
Local wildlife officials, along with WWF Nepal, the National Trust for Nature Conservation, the Nepal army, and local community leaders have spearheaded the project.
