Human-tiger conflict: Interventions

An intervention is an active response, by local wildlife authorities, to recent or ongoing human-tiger conflict. This is usually carried out by ‘tiger response teams’ (TRTs), ideally acting in accordance with some form of ‘tiger response plan’. Unlike preventative and mitigation strategies, interventions target tigers directly and are aimed at preventing or minimising on-going conflict. Examples of interventions include; stationing TRTs in villages, actively deterring tigers from certain areas, changing livestock management practices, capture and rehabilitation of injured tigers, translocation of problem animals and permanent removal from the wild.
