Awareness camp on man-leopard conflict

By City correspondent

GUWAHATI, May 13 � An awareness camp on the man-leopard conflict through community participation was organised at the Gauhati University campus recently.

The man-leopard conflict is common in Assam, especially in Guwahati. Altogether 11 leopards were captured in 2014 alone and a few had lost their lives at the hands of men.

To curb such conflicts and come up with a tangible solution, a team of researchers of the Gauhati University has proposed a project, �Human-leopard conflict mitigation through community participation in Guwahati Metro.�

The awareness camp was aimed at generating knowledge among the students of the varsity.

Prof Prasanta Kumar Saikia of the Department of Zoology, adviser of the project, informed the students about the do�s and don�ts in order to save leopards from extinction in Guwahati.

Under the project, the team of researchers will organise awareness camps at different places here.

The Wildlife Trust of India (WTI), David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and Assam Forest Department will support the initiative.

The camp was attended by hostel boarders and a few employees of the varsity. The students and employees told this correspondent that they had greatly benefited from the awareness camp as they were enlightened on handling a situation when the cats appear among the residents of Guwahati.
