Understanding the Efficacy of Diclofenac Use-ban and its Aftermath Effect on Gyps Vulture in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, Nepal

Kapil K Khadka 1 and Rabindra Kumar Mandal

Study on efficacy of Diclofenac ban and its aftermath effect on Gyps vulture status was conducted in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve in Nepal. Nest survey of the Gyps vulture and questionnaire survey was carried out. Gyps vulture nest were not found in the area. However, a flock of soaring vultures was observed one morning. Use of diclofenac was found to be stopped suggesting gyps vulture potential recovery in the area. Gyps vulture did not appear to be food limited given that the half of the people practice open disposal of carcass. Nonetheless, further study and monitoring of the Gyps vulture is warranted given the fact that there were not any nests of the vultures in the area.
