  • To assist biological research and monitoring functions of NTNC;
  • To provide alternative livelihood options to the local communities;
  • To empower local communities to become guardians of their own resources; and
  • To seek affiliation with national and international universities and research institutes to develop the Center as a regional training and research center.

NTNC’s involvement in Bardia started in 1986 with the translocation of the first batch of rhinoceros from Chitwan National Park. The Bardia Conservation Program (BCP) was launched in 1994 as a regular project of NTNC focusing on biodiversity research and sustainable community development. BCP has been promoting biodiversity conservation in and around Bardia National Park (BNP) by strengthening the capacity of local institutions responsible for natural resource management. Besides, it also promotes sustainable agriculture and forestry, animal husbandry and livestock management, natural forest regeneration, alternative income generation schemes and nature-based tourism.
