ENPROSC team members awarded with IHS Grant
We would like to congratulate two of Environment Conservation and Training Center (ENPROS) members Mr. Prakash Chandra Aryal and Mr. Chandra Mani Aryal to have been awarded with International Herpetological Symposium Grant for their research on Indotestudo Elongata. The grant shall aid the project ‘Trapped in the Anthropogenic Landscape: Conservation status of critically endangered Elongated Tortoise at Bara district, Nepal’. The project targets on using ecological and social research tools to understand the factors affecting their distribution and exploitation dynamics to prepare a baseline on which future conservation interventions can be designed and implemented, at least for the target species.
The first Symposium of Captive Propagation and Husbandry of Reptiles and Amphibians was held in June 1976. That inaugural meeting at Hood College in Frederick, MD, eventually evolved into what we know today as the International Herpetological Symposium (IHS).The IHS has established a grant program to provide financial assistance to individuals or organizations conducting herpetological research, conservation and education.
