Wild buffalo population increases in Kosi Tappu

SAPTARI: The population of one of the rarest animals, the wild buffalo, has increased in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve.

The number of animals that are only found in the Koshitappu Reserve in Nepal has increased. Twenty-two more wild buffaloes were counted this time compared to their population last year.

According to the wildlife reserve office, there were as many as 219 wild buffaloes in 2009. The number increased to 237 last year and it increased to 259 this year, said Warden Ashok Kumar Ram.

Ram said the number was increased when the reserve’s administration controlled the cattle from entering the Koshi Tappu area.

The mammal’s population had suddenly gone down after the Saptakoshi River flooded and eroded parts of the reserve in Bhadra 2, 2064 BS. RSS
