另一方面，有關最近保育團體關注的的皇家蘇克拉梵塔（Suklaphanta）野生動物保留區，目前保留區內的棲地復原計劃，包括擴大棲地及物種保育政策都已開始執行。資深巡守員恰德（Chandra Bahadur Chand）表示，這些努力已展現令人鼓舞的結果，諸如皇家孟加拉虎、亞洲象以及獨角犀牛等野生動物已於橫跨尼泊爾及印度的邊境地帶活動。
蘇克拉梵塔巡守隊長阿希卡利（Tika Ram Adhikari）指出，保護區內的野生動物已不需要為了尋覓水源而長途跋涉，「我們保留了區內的天然池沼及湖泊，此外，幾處新的池沼和灌溉溝渠業已建設完成，這些將足以提供野生動物未來一整年的水源供給不虞匱乏。」
Conservation activities in Nepal have been hampered by difficult security conditions as Maoist and government forces struggled for control over the past decade. Patrols have not been able to monitor wild animals and forests in most national parks and wildlife reserves due to security concerns, but now that a panel has finalized a draft for a temporary constitution, conservationists are hoping the situation will improve.
Nepal's mainstream political parties and Maoist rebels agreed to a ceasefire in May, after mass demonstrations forced King Gyanendra to relinquish power. In June, the two sides agreed to establish an interim government, guided by the interim constitution that is now being drafted.
In July, WWF Nepal, CARE Nepal, the IUCN, and three mountain conservation groups took advantage of this window of opportunity to help shape the future policies of Nepal with regard to biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. They presented the Interim Constitution Drafting Committee with a set of joint recommendations.
Up to 40 percent of Nepal's total land shall be maintained under forest cover for all time, and up to 20 percent of Nepal's total land shall be maintained under a protected areas system, the groups recommended.
Recalling Nepal's "leading role as innovator in biodiversity conservation such as community based nature conservation, community forestry, rural energy development, revenue sharing in protected areas and buffer zone management," the groups recommended that international commitments to environment and biodiversity conservations made by the monarchy be met.
The set of recommendations was well received, says WWF, and the committee assured senior representatives of the groups that they would be incorporated in the draft constitution.
A habitat restoration program within the reserve, habitat extension and species conservation are all underway in Royal Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve in western Nepa, and Senior Ranger Chandra Bahadur Chand says these efforts have shown encouraging results. Wild animals like Royal Bengal tiger, Asian elephant and one-horned rhinoceros have started movements across the Nepal-India border.
The animals in Suklaphanta do not have to go far in search of water, said Suklaphanta Chief Warden Tika Ram Adhikari. "We are conserving the natural ponds and lakes within the reserve area," he said. "In addition, several new ponds and canals have been constructed. These sources provide year-round water supply to wild animals."
Because of the increased availability of prey and food, larger animals like tigers, rhinos and elephants are making their permanent habitats in the reserve, Adhikari observes.
