Sunderbans – Conflict

Man-Animal

Man-eating propensity of Sundarban tiger has been a great problem. This happens with either attack on villagers entering the forest or by tiger straying into the habitation. Numerous steps taken by the management has mitigated this problem to a large extent.

Man-Forest

Dire poverty urges the people of Sundarbans to frequent the forest in search of livelihood. Some of them take the risk of cyclone for fishing and other enter the forest to collect honey and fuel wood. The vulnerable mangrove eco-system is under stress due to such interference.

Total protection of vegetation in the core area without any manipulation of crop density appears not to create ideal habitat condition for the tiger and its prey animals
