Assistance to Local Conservation
Tiger Tops offers assistance to local conservation efforts by providing the salaries of Buffer Zone guards in Chitwan and Bardia National Parks. At these sites Tiger Tops works in close association with officials and provides vehicles, boats, elephants and manpower for patrols and wildlife monitoring.Tharu Lodge provides technical advice to the community-managed Buffer Zone, while guests at Karnali Lodge have donated a motorbike to the National Park.
In the community, lodge naturalists conduct wildlife workshops for students, butterfly workshops and monitoring, and youth training programmes. Additionally, bio-briquette training has been delivered to the Ajrar women’s group to help prevent deforestation and improve health. Every year Tiger Tops Lodges in Chitwan and Karnali also provide logistical support for the Asian Waterfowl Census January count.
