Kathmandu [Nepal], Aug 30 (ANI): In an effort to improve the animal rescue service, the National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) is planning to hand over the country's first ever wildlife ambulance to the Kathmandu District Forest Office.

District Forest Officer Indra Sapkota said that the ambulance will have all the necessary rescue and veterinary equipment to deal with emergencies concerning wildlife.

"It will be first of its kind ambulance in the country that will be used to rescue wild animals," the Kathmandu Post quoted him, as saying.

The step by NTNC is part of the project on "Problematic Wild Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation in and around Kathmandu Valley" signed in 2014.

The ambulance currently at the NTNC will be handed over once the approval related to siren installation and other regulations have been approved. (ANI)
