Nepal’s success is especially impressive, given that South Africa lost a record number of animals to poachers during the same time span. The lack of poaching is attributed to the government’s commitment to conservation with portions of the country’s army guarding some of the parks and an independent law enforcement agency that allows forest officers to hand out zero-tolerance punishments very quickly after the poachers have been caught. Anyone who is caught trying to commit crimes against wildlife can receive a prison sentence up to 15 years. 

Nepal was also free of poachers in 2011, though one rhino was lost in 2012. As a comparison, South Africa has already lost 146 rhinos in 2014.(read more: National Geographic)(photo: Ted Bobosh)
