ITAHARI, March 5: February and March is the peak season for international travelers interested in migratory birds and wild water buffaloes at the only wildlife reserve of the nation, KoshiTappu Wildlife Reserve. Tragically, the foreign tourists' arrival in this bird sanctuary has been reduced to zero largely due to the fear over the spread of the coronavirus.

ITAHARI, Dec 18: Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve (KTWR), which has earned itself the reputation of “birds’ paradise”, has welcomed a disappointingly low number of migratory birds this year.

ITAHARI, Oct 24: To the great joy and excitement of the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve fraternity, Shovakali, a 52-year-old elephant, gave birth to a healthy calf on 5 October. Though the calf, which the reserve family finds ‘cute’ and has been their darling, its safety remains a challenge for them to overcome.
