Thick forests have been razed to create settlement and urban infrastructure swamps, water bodies and forests areas have become dumping grounds for wastes.

Illegal bamboo extraction

Man- wildlife conflicts are due to the following reasons-
Illegal bamboo extraction
Large areas of the forests are covered under bamboo. People from far off off place come and extract bamboo illegally. This creates disturbance for the wild animals and leads to man -wild life conflicts.

Elephants do much damage to these crops

Encroachment by villagers on forest land
The large practices have taken place. Further, wild animals traditional migration routes have been blocked by man -made structure. Crops such as sugarcane and cereals very attractive to elephants, have been sown on forests land. Elephants do much damage to these crops. Therefore, generally, villagers or elephant are often injured or killed in defense or retaliatory actions.

Many wild animals move to villages and cities

Scarcity of water and fodder
today man's brutal dominance of plant earth seems complete. Thick forests have been razed to create settlement and urban infrastructure swamps, water bodies and forests areas have become dumping grounds for wastes. Due to such types of human activities, many wild animals move to villages and cities in search of water and fodder. They harm the human population and damage local property.

Rather than living harmoniously with nature we destroy what we rely on without a second thought. Nice highlight, Rukmini - siva
