Human-animal conflict

Posted on

Conflicts between humans and animals are a serious problem in many parts of the world. The damage and destruction caused by a variety of animals to human property - and sometimes to human life - is a real and significant danger to many human communities. And with the animals often killed, captured, or otherwise harmed in retaliation, these conflicts are one of the main threats to the continued survival of many species. WWF views human-animal conflict as a priority issue for its work on species protection.
