Bengal Tiger Population Demography and Genetic Connectivity
This project used camera trapping and sign surveys in and around Chitwan National Park to determine Tiger, Leopard, and prey distribution and density. We also conducted large-scale scat sampling across the 1000 km long Terai Arc Landscape in the lesser-known, and often ignored, Churia Hills habitat (i.e. “the forgotten TigerLand”). We determined genetic diversity and connectivity of Tigers and Leopards across the Terai Arc. See the and follow on Twitter for more information on our work.
