Tiger in the Kailash Sacred Landscape: Good news for some, not so good for others
The article has been taken out from the Sacred Attempt for Natural Growth &Joyful Union (SANGJU), a newsletter published by G.B. Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment &Sustainable Development (GBPNIHESD). The article stresses on how conservation agencies feel a sense of relief that the forests and other natural habitats in this landscape are still intact and continue to support adequate prey base and large predators such as tiger. However, human dependency on collection of non-timber forest produce, fodder and livestock grazing in the area, there is always a risk of tiger accidentally killing a livestock or a human being, resulting in serious conflicts.
