The Indian Peacock Softshell Turtle (Nilssonia hurum) is an endangered species facing numerous threats in eastern Nepal. Habitat destruction, water pollution, overfishing, and other human activities have contributed to a significant decline in their population.
Our project aims to address these challenges and conserve the Indian Peacock soft-shell turtle. Through comprehensive surveys and data analysis, we will assess the distribution patterns of the species and identify the primary threats they face.
Objectives of the project:
- Assess the threats and distribution patterns of the endangered Indian Peacock soft-shell turtle.
- Raise awareness among local communities and stakeholders about the importance of conservation.
- Promote sustainable practices to mitigate the identified threats.
- Develop evidence-based conservation materials to guide conservation efforts.
To foster conservation awareness, we will organize awareness campaigns and workshops for local communities, students, and stakeholders. These initiatives will emphasize the importance of protecting the turtle and promote sustainable practices to mitigate the identified threats.
Based on our research findings, we will develop evidence-based conservation materials. These materials will provide guidelines for conservation efforts and highlight the importance of preserving the Indian Peacock soft-shell turtle and its habitat.
Join us in our mission to protect this endangered species, raise awareness, and implement sustainable conservation practices in eastern Nepal. Together, we can make a difference and safeguard the future of the Indian Peacock soft-shell turtle.
