Nepal is exceptionally diverse and beautiful with habitats ranging from tropical lowland forests to alpine peaks including some of the world’s highest mountains. It also lies in the region of overlap between the Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan realms resulting in a rich and diverse bird life.
Carol Inskipp is the co-author of the Birds of Nepal field guide and several books on Nepal bird conservation including Important Bird Areas of Nepal and Nepal’s Forest Birds and their Conservation. In this talk she will give an overview of Nepal’s birds and the challenges of their conservation. Donations on the night will go to the Nepalese charity, Go School Initiative which is funding the building of temporary schools in Gaurishankar Conservation Area.
