Reducing Human-Wildlife Conflict in the Eastern Himalayas
As human populations expand and natural habitats shrink, people and animals are increasingly coming into conflict over living space and food. The impacts are often huge - people loose their crops, livestock, property, and sometimes their lives. The animals, many of which are already threatened, are often killed in retaliation. In the Eastern Himalayas, elephants, tigers, leopards, snow leopards and rhinos are particularly susceptible.
