Although the park area is not sufficient in terms of the number of tigers it hosts, it is known as the protected area with the high density of tiger population in a small area.

“Although the tiger’s habitat is relatively smaller in terms of the area compared to the number of tigers found. There are many tigers here because of the adequate prey, ” Park’s conservation officer, Laxman Poudel, said.

Shuklaphanta park also hosts the largest herd of the swamp deer in the world. The population of swamp deer is over 2,200.

The Park organized a programme here to mark the 11th Tiger Day today where the speakers stressed on the need to protect the tiger.
