ASAP Species That We Work On
What We Do
FON primarily works on lesser-known species which are generally neglected by mainstream conservation. We conduct research on wildlife and other components of biodiversity to assess the conservation problems while also developing innovative solutions to implement them. We are continuously working on Clouded Leopard, Asiatic Wild Dog, Owl, Himalayan Black Bear and grassroots level conservation to uplift the livelihood of local community.
With regards to ASAP species, we generally work with vultures in Rampur IBA. We are working for the conservation and safeguard of all the vulture species with a primarily focus on the White-rumped Vulture. The IBA supports the largest breeding population of White-rumped vulture in Nepal and our organization is monitoring the population status and nesting behaviour. We also sensitize the local community, students, and other stakeholders to the conservation and monitoring of the species.
