Expeditions in Conservation: Rhinos of the Terai Arc

Within the Terai Arc region of Nepal and northern India live the increasingly rare greater one-horned rhino, an animal whose numbers have dropped dramatically over the past few years. This particular type of rhino is the largest of the three Asian rhinos, reaching lengths of approximately ten feet and a weight of about 2.2 metric tons. Utilizing this nice Web site developed by the World Wildlife Fund, visitors can learn about a recent expedition sponsored by the Fund designed to relocate 10 of these massive creatures from Royal Chitwan National Park to the Royal Bardian Park. At the site, visitors can learn more about the different species that live in the region, meet the team of researchers, and read their daily dispatches from the field. For students, a feedback section allows individuals to ask the scientists questions about their work, and a brief quiz tests them on information provided on the site.
