It is dedicated to the conservation and research of biodiversity in Nepal with particular reference diversity and conservation of small mammals since 2009.

Apart from conservation and research in biodiversity, SMCRF is also involved in promoting livelihood on community through conservation, formulating conservation policy, developing multi-stakeholder partnership promoting leadership and promoting future generation of wildlife researcher and conservation biologist.

What We Do

We conduct research on mammals and biodiversity, climate change and ecology and environment to explore and address their conservation issues. Strengthening the skills of young researchers, related stakeholders and local people is our important mission. We are focused on actions to directly contribute in the conservation. We provide research grants to the students and young researchers. We regularly monitor small mammals through our periodic events- quarterly bat watching and small mammal hiking. We lead mass media programs to support research and conservation.
