Conservation issues

 Following are some of the important issues in this landscape:
  • Habitat degradation due to deforestation, developmental activities, uncontrolled grazing practices and agriculture.
  • Poaching, illegal extraction of natural resources and a thriving wildlife trade in the region due to its porous international boundaries with four countries – Nepal, Bhutan, China and Bangladesh.
  • Poorly regulated tourism.
  • Inadequate awareness on wildlife and environment among common people.
