Title

Potentiality of Pangolin based Ecotourism in Chuchhekhola Community Forest, Makawanpur, Nepal

Abstract

Wildlife based tourism is propounding throughout the world where even a single species can play crucial role in promoting tourism of species inhabiting locality. Both species of pangolin, recorded in Nepal, are globally threatened creatures and found in Chuchhekhola Community Forestry (CKCF). Focus group discussion (n=5) and individual interview (n=200) were done for preliminary confirmation on presence of Pangolin and the potential pocket areas and chances of sighting in the forest. Direct field observation was carried out to record detail information, presence evidence i.e. sign or direct sighting. We recorded 43 fresh, 157 new and 346 old burrows. We calculated 2 individuals per 10 hectares based on the number of fresh burrows in the forest. Out of 200 respondents, 120 respondents were aware about this species. Out of known respondents, 60% respondents encountered with pangolin either in the forest or in agricultural field. Among them, 80% were aware its international significance. Recently constructed Pangolin Park with statue made this area renowned to local and national level and educate the about international importance of pangolin. National and international organizations were also active to explore more about this species. It is believed that that Pangolin is the center of attraction of the visitors and work as flagship species for the ecotourism promotion if the area is wisely managed
