Samundra Subba is a research officer and Sabita Malla is a wildlife biologist, both working at WWF Nepal. Follow them on their adventure as they discover Nepal’s first documented high altitude tiger.

Protecting tigers

Dadeldhura’s first photographed tiger is historic for many reasons. Tangible evidence of tigers at 2500m provides solid ground for tiger conservation in the Mahabharata range (high altitude regions of Nepal). The finding also expands Nepal’s known tiger distribution from the Terai Arc Landscape - widening potential tiger habitats in the country at a time when the whole world is battling to protect its existing range.
