Lakes drying up in Shuklaphanta wildlife park


BELAURI: Natural water bodies inside the Shuklaphanta Wildlife Reserve here have started drying up leading to a shortage of water for the wildlife.
As the natural water sources have dried up due to the long drought, the Reserve office has been constructing artificial lakes and ponds filling them with ground water drawn up by using hand pumps so that the wild animals can drink from these ponds.
It is said most of the over six dozen or so natural lakes and ponds in the reserve have dried up creating shortage of water for the wildlife.

“As most of the natural sources of water inside the reserve have dried up, we have constructed artificial ponds at different places inside the reserve and filling them with water from tube-wells to meet the water crunch for the wildlife,” said Yuvraj Regmi, the conservation officer at the reserve.

The reserve has constructed half a dozen artificial lakes at different locations inside the reserve for providing drinking water to the wild animals. Shuklaphanta wildlife reserve is home to largest concentration of the rare swamp deer population in the world. RSS
