Meanwhile, almost 4,000 miles east in Nepal, the Greater one-horned rhino is thriving!
Forty years ago the species was endangered, with only 600 left in the wild. Now, its status on the ICUN Red List has moved from "endangered" to "vulnerable" and there are over 300 in the wild. In Nepal, spread across over 350 square miles of national park, live over 500 animals. Chitwan National Park, at the foot of the Himalayas, is home to Bengal Tigers, bisons, leopards, antelopes, Asian Elephants, crocodiles, hares, and many others.
