The Gharial crocodile census has been completed in the Rapti and the Narayani rivers here. The two rivers flow past the Chitwan National Park and form the park’s boundary.
The crocodile count has been carried out on the Narayani river from Sikhrauli to Triveni and on the Rapti river from Jindagani Ghat to Dovan, said Ved Khadka, Assistant Conservation Officer at the CNP.
It took three days to carry out the census. Khadka said the exact number of the Gharial crocodiles will be determined within a month after this census is tallied.
A census carried out in 2011 found that there were 33 Gharial crocodiles in the Rapti river and 48 in the Narayani river. The total Gharial population throughout the country was 202.
