Background and about the program: Wildlife conservation is essential to balance the ecosystem. As a result of anthropogenic pressure such as habitat fragmentation, habitat loss, linear barriers human wildlife conflict has been continuing and increasing with time. Human-Wildlife conflict is one of the major threats to the sustained survival of many species across the world, and in countries like India, a significant threat to health and lives of people/local communities including the security and sustainability of their livelihoods. The necessity of the day is to manage conflict so that it remains within tolerable limits though in present condition human dominated landscape has some level of tolerance. Along with management interventions such as policy and prevention, mitigation, understanding the conflict and response to conflict play a crucial role in managing such conflict situations. Apart from that conservation implications are also important subject for effective management of wildlife in habitat.
