With increased urbanization in the past few decades, humans and wildlife have not had much contact with each other. However, as land space and resources get limited due to human population growth, human-wildlife interactions increase. Often, these interactions are negative and threaten human health, safety, and human resources. In response, with defensive killing wildlife is harmed as well, while their resources have already diminished. In order to protect biodiversity and manage protected areas, it is important to mitigate these conflicts using an interdisciplinary lens.

From 2016-17, there were reports of tigers moving toward the urban and peri-urban regions of Bhopal city, where human density is more than 2500 per sq. km. Mr D. P. Srivastava is working on a better understanding of the presence of wildlife and space use in these areas. By determining human attitudes, the diets of the tigers and the patterns of space use, new and better strategies for tiger conservation can be implemented. The Nature’s Eye is offering a FREE insightful webinar on Human-Wildlife Interactions with a focus on a case study of Tiger Interactions in Bhopal on September 27.
