Author(s): K Senthilkumar, P Mathialagan and C Manivannan
Abstract: Human-monkey conflict continue to be a prevalent issue in many regions worldwide. Monkeys, known for their adaptability and omnivorous diet, often come into conflict with humans due to various reasons such as habitat encroachment, agricultural damage, and urban expansion. Monkeys, while generally not aggressive toward humans unless threatened or provoked, can pose risks in certain situations, especially when cornered, startled, or defending their young. Monkeys to top the list of human wildlife conflicts although they do not cause human death. But they will cause serious injury to humans by means of biting. Hence a case study was conducted at the Chengalpet district in Tamil Nadu to understand the extent of damage caused by monkey to the farmers and their families in agriculture. This study confirmed that burning crackers, providing training by the foresters to the public about the do’s and don’ts in the monkey conflict areas might reduce the human-monkey conflict. Mitigating human-monkey conflicts involves employing a combination of strategies aimed at reducing negative interactions and fostering coexistence.
