Is there enough groundwater to save the tiger?
Do the Karnali and Babai rivers provide enough water in the long run to sustain grasslands in Bardiya National Park? Increasing amounts of water are withdrawn for irrigation, hydropower and water supply. A better understanding of the geo-hydrological situation of Bardiya is necessary to be able to introduce adequate water management in and around the park. See: Save the Tiger! Save the Groundwater?
