Human Tiger Co-existence

A growing number of tigers in the park and concomitant agricultural development and urbanization in the adjacent buffer zones might result in increasing human wildlife conflicts. To sustain general acceptance of wildlife conservation by the local communities, it is essential to mitigate such conflicts. This requires a better understanding of human tiger conflicts. This issue is being studied both in the Bardiya and Chitwan National Parks, by Subodh Upadhyaya and Babu Ram respectively.
