Tiger Monitoring Project

Tiger Tops Long Term Tiger Monitoring Project

Tiger Tops Long Term Tiger Monitoring Project, launched in 1980, is funded by ITNC, and FFTN, theNepal Tiger Trust. Since 1995, two wildlife technicians have been camera trapping tigers. They have produced the most detailed data to date on tiger ecology, territorial dynamics, turnover, reproduction and tiger survival. Research is the key to sound management of protected areas. Research, coupled with other efforts, will help develop policy for management of areas not directly covered by government protection.
