Exciting news from Nepal!
According to Suman Bhattarai, founder of Partnership for Rhino Conservation (PARC/Nepal), this event will be the first of its kind.
This is very exciting – it is the first time World Rhino Day has been celebrated in Chitwan, or even in Nepal!
PARC/Nepal has organized the historic event, which includes a radio program and coverage by the local TV station, Beso Channel.
Beso Channel reaches the entire district of Chitwan, Nepal.
A series of promo clips will be aired the week prior to the live broadcast on World Rhino Day. The program will be shown on a regular basis for a few months.
Last year, PARC, along with Hands for Conservation held a public awareness event that reached thousands of people: Rhino Conservation Event Reaches Over 5,000 People in Chitwan, Nepal.
We have been working with Suman Bhattarai and his grassroots organization Partnership for Rhino Conservation (PARC/Nepal) since June 2009. Under Suman’s guidance, PARC focuses on helping the residents of Chitwan National Park’s buffer zone live side-by-side with the greater one-horned rhino.
We assist Suman with promoting PARC’s efforts on our social media platforms and also with support from our t-shirt sales.
