We thank Mr. B.N. Upreti, Director General of the DNPWC, for his encouragement and approval of our work in several parks and reserves of Nepal, and USAID and WWF-US for financing our various research projects related to wildlife conservation and reserve management over several years. We would also like to thank the many DNPWC field officers for facilitating our various trips to Nepal's reserves, and for providing much useful information. The first author would like to thank former Deans Rajbandari and Prajapati of the Institute of Forestry, Pokhara Campus, and its faculty, staff, and diploma students, for providing transportation, library use, housing, research leave, accompaniment in the field, and stimulating conversations about Nepal and its natural resources on many occasions during his three years as lecturer in the Wildlife Conservation Program.
