Abstract

Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) is negatively acting on both humans and wildlife equally alike as it affects the co-existence of natural resources leading to loss, fragmentation, and degradations of wildlife habitats. Apart from this, direct and indirect effects result on both humans and wildlife; loss of lives is the major direct impact affecting both counterparts. This paper is reviewing the reasons for arising of HWC, causes of HWC, major impacts on HWC, and different preventive and mitigatory measures practiced in different parts of the world.
