Rhinoceros numbers are increasing due to an end of people military fighting in NepalKATHMANDU (Reuters) - The numbers of endangered one-horned rhinoceros in Nepal are growing, thanks to effective anti-poaching measures in forests once occupied Maoist rebels, a senior park official said on Monday.

With peace, forests guards are going back to the jungles and authorities are restoring security and watching posts that had been removed during the decade-long Maoist insurgency that ended in 2006.

Rhino-experts, armed with binoculars and cameras, combed the Chitwan National Park on elephant backs for more than two weeks and counted 408 great one-horned rhinoceroses, chief warden of the park, Megh Bahadur Pandey said.

Peace is essential for environmental health as well as human health. Peace provides all with better crops and farm animal results, meaning less or no need to go and cut down forests and jungle to obtain new farmland, or kill animals that are little or no threat.
