Colonel John Blashford-Snell's Bardia (Nepal) Quest 2019 expedition was an expedition organised to continue the research done by SES since 1991 into the wild elephants of Bardia, tiger and rhino and also to provide community aid to the local people. 

Professor Alastair Driver who co-ordinated the wildlife studies (and who produced a feature for his parish magazine) commented “The Bardia expedition was a truly memorable experience for me thanks to our superb local guides, not only because I achieved a lifetime ambition of seeing tigers close-up in the wild, but also because we notched up over 150 bird species, 18 mammals and 9 reptiles and secured many high quality images of butterflies, dragonflies etc which I now aim to identify to add to the National Park records.”
