Rare rhino census begins

Nepal has started counting rare one-horned rhinos at a sanctuary where poaching during a decade of civil war likely cut the population by more than half, wildlife officials said. “We started our census campaign on tracking (the) endangered one-horned rhinoceros,” Omkar Joshi, protection officer at the Bardiya National Park said. The census will last for at least two weeks, during which wildlife experts will comb the jungles of the rhino sanctuary in Bardiya National Park, 350km (218 miles) west of Kathmandu, he said.
