Animal Nepal: Don’t construct roads or railways inside Chitwan National Park

Railway chitwanAnimal Nepal today relaunched its campaign against road and railway construction inside Chitwan National Park. The organisations strongly opposes the construction of an East West Railway, Terai Hulaki Highway and feeder roads inside the park and through the Chure hills. “Chitwan is a unique protected heritage site that has taken us forty years to develop. The government has no right to destroy its habitat in the name of development,” says Animal Nepal.

Nepal’s government announced its plans to construct a Terai Hulaki Highway and East-West Electric Railway in Terai, cutting through Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage, in July 2013.

The projects threaten tourism and decades of conservation that has rescued the tiger and rhino from the brink of extinction.

Earthbag is an affordable and earthquake safe building method for Nepal, says Animal Nepal. The animal welfare agency was pleasantly surprised when its earthbag/adobe shelter did not sustain a single crack during the earthquakes that hit Nepal in April and May.

The concept behind the eco-friendly shelter was to offer an alternative to using bricks, because of the inhumane situations in the brick industry. Coordinated by programme manager Suraj Thapa, overseer Norbu Kalden and engineering student Stefan Klaseboer, the building  was constructed using the earthbag and adobe technique. Read a detailed report on the construction of this unique shelter by Stefan Klaseboer here.

14 August, 2015-  When Buddy and friends at Animal Nepal Donkey Sanctuary knew that students from Lavender Pre-school were about to pay them a visit, they just couldn’t wait anymore. Buddy, who thinks that he is the most handsome mule in the sanctuary, took the responsibility of welcoming the guest. In the afternoon 37 students along with 9 staff members from Lavender Pre-school reached the sanctuary and they were just amazed to be surrounded by so many rescued animals.

At first the kids were quite nervous and scared with our donkeys and mules but after Luv and Kush came nibbling towards them the kids thought that they were so funny and they were just trying to play with them. Later on they became used to with our animals and they even fed Buddy and other equines at the sanctuary. More

Animal Nepal Earthquake Relief for Animals_Page_01

The earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday April 25 left a trail of devastation. Apart from hundreds of thousands of people, countless animals were affected too. Animal Nepal launched an Emergency Appeal to respond to the crisis through donation and volunteer appeal. We even organized various workshops and launched major protocols in the treatment of livestock with the help of world vets volunteers. Reaching out to the forgotten victims of the earthquake, Animal Nepal in the wake of the disaster treated more than 400 animals. Three veterinary teams visited Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Dhading, Sindhupalchowk, Nuwakot and Rasuwa to help farm and pet animals. They witnessed the loss of farmers as their lives are fully dependent on their animals who have always been their main source of income. Animal Nepal recently launched it’s interim report on Animal Nepal Earthquake Relief for Animals which includes the detail of our relief program. The full report can be downloaded hereMore
