The conservation of Bengal Tigers, one of the world's most endangered species, is a top priority in Nepal and South Asia region. Nepal is considered to be a source and transit point of poaching and illegal trade of wildlife and their parts and products, including that of Bengal Tigers. An estimated total of 121 adult Bengal Tigers have been known to inhabit four protected areas of the Terai Arc Landscape in three sub-populations- the Chitwan population (Parsa Wildlife Reserve & Chitwan National Park), the Bardia population (Bardia National Park) and the Suklaphanta population (Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve) in Nepal. The Government of Nepal (GON) has an ambitious goal of doubling this number by 2022.
