Bardia National Park is situated in the western Terai of Nepal and was established for protecting the representative ecosystems and conserving the habitat of tiger and its prey species. Initially, it was established as Karnali Wildlife Reserve with a small area by shifting 1500 households of Babai Valley. The relocation of households was made for the flourishment of reserve, vegetation, and wildlife. Later, it was named Bardia Wildlife Reserve and upgraded to Bardia National Park in 1988.
