[Ambassador report] Free report: CAMPAIGN ON KNOW LIFE FORMS IN NEPAL

by Meena Pandey | 04-09-2020 18:01 Comments 16 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



Well, it has already been 4 months that I had initiated ‘Know Life forms in Nepal ’campaign. This campaign is an online campaign so as to make people know the facts and status of the animals.


A total of 208 mammal species have been recorded to occur in Nepal. Of these 23% are considered to be Nationally Threatened with extinction, with 4% of species considered Critically Endangered, 12% Endangered and 7% Vulnerable.

Of the 208 known species of mammal in Nepal, one is considered Regionally Extinct, eight are considered Critically Endangered, twenty-six are considered Endangered, fourteen are considered Vulnerable and seven are considered Near Threatened. A further 3% are considered Near Threatened, meaning they are likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future. Thirty-five percent of Nepal’s mammals are considered Least Concern, and 38% are considered Data Deficient.


Thus, to know the facts of such animals, to evaluate the status of each species and to identify specific threats to the species and make conservation recommendations, I had initiated this campaign. I take online campaign as the effective one when we cannot move outside the home. The world suffered from global pandemic and at my tenure as 24th regional ambassador, I had organized this campaign. Altogether, I have posted 30 facts of life forms of Nepal which I post in gallery session of Tunza Eco-generation

There are 27 mammal species in Nepal which have been allocated a higher protection status. Nepal is a highly diverse and unique country harbouring an extraordinary variety of landscapes, cultures and wildlife. Despite making up less than 1% of the world’s total land mass, its physiographic features range from the highest terrestrial ecosystem in the world, the Himalayas, to the subtropical lowlands of the Terai. This contrast makes Nepal one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, containing within its small area of 141,181 km²: 4.2% of all mammals, 8.5% of all birds and 2.2% of all flowering plants on Earth, including threatened flagship species such as the Royal Bengal Tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus), Greater One-horned Rhino (Rhinoceros unicornis) and South Asian River Dolphin (Platanista gangetica) (Shrestha et al. 2001).

 

In addition to the vast faunal diversity, 35 forest types and 118 ecosystems are present in Nepal (GoN, MoFSC 2009). Almost 25% of the country’s landmass is designated as protected area, with 10 national parks, three wildlife reserves, five conservation areas and one hunting reserve.

 

All terrestrial organisms are interconnected; the plants affect the animals, and vice versa. Terrestrial ecosystems derive their initial energy from the sun. Plants capture the energy in sunlight and convert it to chemical energy by the process of photosynthesis. Some animals help to bring out the nutrients from the cycle while others help in decomposition, carbon, and nitrogen cycle. All animals, insects, and even microorganisms play a role in the ecosystem. All animals and plants in the ecosystem co-exist and balance each other out, which Mother Nature has perfected over time and through trials and errors, and found a system that works flawlessly for her. The system that exists in Mother Nature is designed for all the different species of the world, where each has a role to play without disturbing each other and without taking the ecological balance off. All animals help to save our environment.

Thus in order to save the environment, animal protection is the must. Here, I have presented the facts and status of the animals found in Nepal posted till date in the google drive, please have it.

    Hello Meena! This is your mentor WooJoo :)

    Wow, you really work hard organizing campaigns! I wish I could become as creative as you!
    I've never visited Nepal, but it is one of the countries that I would like to visit when the pandemic is gone. I would like to enjoy of its beautiful landscape and ecosystem too. Animal extinction is a sad situation and I even feel sorry for them.

    Thank you for sharing another splendid campaign story with us!

    Best wishes,
