Peter Byrne is a naturalized American citizen whose great interest in wildlife began in the countryside of Ireland, where he was born and grew up.
When he was eighteen he joined the British Air Force and served for four years in combat service in World War II. When the war ended, he joined a British tea company in north Bengal and spent five years living and working in the great forests of north India, terrain that teemed with wildlife in those years. In 1953 he left his tea industry work and walked from Darjeeling to Katmandu, 350 miles, to start a safari company. He ran this as a professional hunter in south west Nepal for eighteen years, before returning his hunting concession back to the Nepalese government and offering to turn it into protected area. To this end, in 1968, and to generate funding to create the new reserve, he founded, with four others-two doctors and two attorneys - the International Wildlife Conservation Society Inc., and had it registered in Washington D.C. as a not-for-profit foundation with 501 © 3 tax status. Returning to Nepal he spent a year encamped in the area that is today the Sukila Phanta (The White Grass Plains, or WGP) Wildlife Reserve and, working with local labor, demarcated and mapped the whole area, built roads and bridges, trained guards in wildlife protection work and provided equipment. Since that time he has spent part of every winter in the reserve, either working on conservation projects or running eco tours with clients as a means of raising money for these projects. Peter is the author of seven books; three of them-TULA HATTI, THE LAST GREAT ELEPHANT (Faber & Faber, NH), GENTLEMAN HUNTER and GONE ARE THE DAYS (Safari Press, California), being centered on wildlife in the Indo-Nepal region. His eighth book, due for release in 2007, will be a field guide to the WGP. He is a Member of the Academy of Applied Science of Boston, MA, a Member Emeritus of the Explorers Club of New York and, since 1968, Executive Director of the International Wildlife Conservation Society.

The work was carried out and the project completed by IWCS Executive Director Peter Byrne, in March and April.
Water is supplied to this hole by a gushing underground spring which, during the fifty years that Peter Byrne has been visiting the park, has never ceased its powerful flow. However, the hole itself-actually a small lake, some 15 meters wide by 200 meters long-is not used by wildlife for two reasons. Work on this next phase of the IWCS water-for-wildlife projects is scheduled for February-March, 2003, and will be carried out by Peter Byrne. Peter Byrne Peter Byrne.

We are grateful to the American Himalayan Foundation for grants that supported this work and also to Mr. Phil Fry, of New Zealand, who personally assisted IWCS director Mr. Peter Byrne, in the field.
Peter Byrne and Phil Fry of New Zealand, at Karnali (far west Nepal) after the completion of the Bhatpuri Lake project. In meetings recently held in Boston with the esteemed Academy of Applied Science, IWCS Executive Director Peter Byrne and AAS President Mr. Robert Rines finalized plans for the new joint project. The work, which will be carried out by Mr. Byrne, will commence in the first week of November 2005 and is expected to take about six months, that is to say to the beginning of the rains.
