HUMAN-WILDLIFE CONFLICT AND WILDLIFE WATERSHED MANAGEMENT
Author(s): Dheeraj Kumar Mishra, Rathore SS and Devendra Pandey
In India, man-animal conflict is seen across the country in a variety of forms, including monkey menace in the urban areas, crop raiding by ungulates and wild pigs, depredation by elephants and cattle & human killing by tigers and leopards. Damage to agricultural crops and property, killing of livestock and human beings are some of the worst forms of man-animal conflict. One of the main challenges in and around any reserve forest area is to avoid or at least to minimize the incidences of man-animal conflict. An attempt has been made to analyze one of the main reasons (acute shortage of water in forest areas) behind such conflicts and suggest remedial measures to minimize this menace by adopting appropriate watershed management techniques.
