Human And Wildlife Conflict

Natural Habitats have shrinked due to the population increase and human - wildlife conflicts also increased. Conflicts varying from monkeys and baboons attacking crops, lions killing livestock and people to elephants trampling children and even trained people have risen. Some researches show that with the climate changing, human and wildlife conflicts are going to worsen. This has been evident as rain shortages in the past few years in Southern Africa led to shortages of grazing land and it forced cattle grazers to encroach into wildlife areas. These Economic struggles also impeded rural development initiatives. Road construction saves as a barrier to wildlife and without these roads human and wildlife interactions increase.
