Wildlife conservation is an undeniable need. Most of Nepal’s people still rely on wildlife resources for necessities like fuel, fodder, and medicinal plants. Plus, a huge sum of currency is earned through wildlife-based tourism, which has been a welcome addition to Nepal’s GDP.
This collaboration between international NGOs and local NGOs (I/NGOs), government agencies, and local communities has been the key factor that has broadly curbed poaching and illegal activities to a broad scale, making Nepal an admirable example of wildlife conservation.
Nepal, thus, has a beautiful message for the world. Do not let the local community be isolated from conservation strategies, but instead let them enjoy the benefits of conservation following principles of sustainability.
