BBC and World Atlas interviewed KP

While stories of wildlife reclaiming their land lost to humans during the lockdown are making viral news on social media, opportunistic poachers are taking advantage of the troubled times to invade wild habitats to kill animals for profit. Yes, the picture is not as rosy as it seems, and wildlife in many parts of the world have been left highly vulnerable to poaching.

The past few weeks have witnessed a surge in poaching incidents in several countries. South Africa has reported an increase in rhino poaching, poachers in Nepal have claimed the lives of elephants and gharials, and Malaysia is striving hard to protect its severely threatened sun bears from falling prey to the China-influenced bear bile industry.

Kumar Paudel has discussed things with enforcement authorities in Nepal and quoted in BBC Nepali, World Atlas and many newspapers.
