Reference:  researchgate.net

Why the question:

Explain the correlation of man-animal conflict and habitat conservation.

Key Demand of the question:

Explain in what way devoid of a focus on habitat conservation, success of project Elephant may tip to more man-animal conflict.

Directive:

Discuss – This is an all-encompassing directive – you have to debate on paper by going through the details of the issues concerned by examining each one of them. You have to give reasons for both for and against arguments.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction:

Start with importance of habitat conservation.

Body:

Discuss first the project Elephant and the current situation of elephants in India.

Explain the issue of Human-Animal conflict due to decreasing habitat and increasing Elephant population. Man animal conflict leads to crop damage, animal deaths, loss of human life, injuries to people, and injuries to wildlife, livestock depredation, and low compensation for such incidents further leads to degraded living standards of the affected population.

Briefly discuss the other reasons for habitat loss and challenges of its conservation.

Conclusion:

The Elephant population seems to be growing in various states which is a positive sign but as the country celebrates its conservation success, policymakers and scientists will have to put their heads together to devise more creative solutions and find homes for the increasing number of Elephants, because without the focus on habitat conservation, the human-animal conflict is bound to rise.
