Prayer of Gratitude for the Conservation of Nepal’s Rhinos and Tigers

11 Marzo 2023

We thank God for all the good that people are doing to build a better world. In the 1960’s, Nepal’s one-horned rhino population was reduced to less than 100, threatening them with extinction. Thanks to the effort of the military forces, NGOs and local communities who are fighting poachers, Nepal has become a global conservation leader. Yet Nepal’s latest rhino census reveals the number of rhinos has grown to 752. The rise is the result of the toughest anti-poaching approaches and innovative community-based conservation efforts.
