Human- animal conflict management



India's rising human population and mega development projects, are continuously putting a burden on the country’s natural resources and wildlife. Forests are becoming more and more fragmented, wildlife corridors are fast disappearing and villages, fields and cities are increasingly encroaching into practically every natural eco-system.

This has led to a rise in human-animal conflicts, be it with elephants in the west and northeast, monkeys in urban and rural areas, or wolves and leopards in most states where the species are found. Conflicts with carnivores have resulted in many human casualties and in turn animals like leopards and wolves are being targeted by local populations and killed in substantial numbers.

WPSI is closely involved in trying to reduce human-animal conflict by helping to develop new management strategies and policies, and by developing a variety of strategies with for conflict mitigation with local communities. We believe that human-animal conflict is shortly going to become the biggest challenge for India's wildlife conservation efforts.
