Mission Statement

Goal: Building wildlife genetics capacity for wild Bengal Tiger conservation in Nepal. Objectives: To enhance capacity to apply molecular tools and provide DNA forensic evidence for policy processes; To customize spatial genetic data-based wildlife tracker to for tigers; and To transfer DNA Genomic based technology to Nepal.

Description

Nepal Tiger Genome Project (NTGP) is an initiative by the Center for Molecular Dynamics Nepal, with the generous support from the American people through USAID for making funding available and collaboration with the government of Nepal’s MOFSC and DNPWC, to develop comprehensive non-invasive genetic technology for broader conservation efforts of Bengal tigers in Nepal. Conservation of the Bengal tigers in Nepal is a top priority due to dwindling number of this apex predator in the region. In order to develop effective policies and strategies for conservation of Bengal tigers, effective census tools need to be developed and deployed. Tiger conservation challenges are exacerbated by poaching activities in the region; available tools for conservation are inadequate and ineffective to address the challenges of tiger conservation.
