Human wildlife conflict is an issue where only few people knows and concerns about the environmental impacts. According to the World Conservation Union, human wildlife conflict occurs when wildlifes requirements overlap with human populations, creating costs to people and wild animals.
As a student currently living in State College, I think this conflict is a huge critical threat to the survival of endangered species from all over the world.
Even though human wildlife conflict do not involves within State College area, but everyone should at least understand the problem and support the conservation prospect of threatened endangered species.
Since I am taking a Penn State geography course about sustainability, my group has proposed the solution to overcome this conflict in our final project report.
There are many ways to solve this issue and for me the best solution is the one that will never ever harm the animals in any ways.
However, it should also not harm the humans. as well. Why don’t we sacrifice the money instead of sacrificing the animals that already have least number of populations?
We could make more money, but nothing can replace the threatened species if they were extinct. Both human and animals share the same planet. Thus, if we save the animals, we could preserve our nature.
