Bones of the tiger; protecting the man-eaters of Nepal.


Bones of the tiger; protecting the man-eaters of Nepal.

Mishra, Hemanta R.

The Lyons Press


243 pages




Over the 20th century, the number of tigers on the planet dropped precipitously, from more than 100,000 in 1900 to fewer than 3,500 at century's end. A leading wildlife biologist and conservationist, Mishra relates the story of Nepal's efforts to save its endangered tiger population--an effort that, despite many early successes, has foundered during the country's political upheavals of the past decade. Despite habitat destruction and fragmentation--and continuing problems with poachers--the author is optimistic about the tiger's future in Nepal and in other parts of its remaining range. Includes eight pages of color photos.
