New Delhi, Nov 27 (IBNS) The government on Tuesday said it has taken steps to mitigate man-animal conflict.

Union Environment and Forests Minister Jayanthi Natarajan told the Parliament on Tuesday: "Increase in human population coupled with shrinkage in wildlife habitats has led to a conflict situation."

1. In the Centrally Sponsored Schemes, viz., 'Integrated Development of Wildlife Habitats', 'Project Tiger' and 'Project Elephant' financial assistance is provided to the State Governments for improvement of forest and wildlife areas like the national parks and sanctuaries to augment food and water availability in forests which can reduce migration of animals from forests to the habitations.

2. Construction of barriers like boundary walls and solar-powered electric fences around the sensitive areas to prevent the wild animal attacks.

3. Payment of ex-gratia relief to the victims of wild animal attacks and depredation.

4. Development of necessary infrastructure and support facilities for immobilization of the identified problematic animals through tranquilization, and their relocation to the natural habitat or rehabilitation in rescue centers.

6. Programmes are launched to sensitize people and create awareness about the Do`s and Don'ts in case of wild animals scare and attacks.

7. Eco-development activities are undertaken in villages around Protected Areas to elicit the cooperation of communities in management of the Protected Areas, which includes actions to address the grievances of people regarding human-wildlife conflicts.
