The Himalayan Tiger Foundation initiates, facilitates and (co-) finances applied research in Nepal to enable tiger population to grow sustainably by restoring their habitat.
We invite young and bright Nepalese conservation officers and scientists to do a PhD study in the area of tiger conservation at a European university. The research work is focused on Bardiya National Park and its buffer zones as a model for the Terai.
