In India many of the villages are isolated and live patiently side by side with the animals understanding that they have needs & rights too. I am delighted whenever I see a project bringing greater benefit to both the community and the wildlife.

I think there ARE times when villagers have to be relocated, but there ARE also times when the villagers need to work with the wildlife, such as what is going on in Ranthambhore. There, there is a clinic, a school, and a place where people can get jobs and have a chance to better themselves without resorting to poaching or degrading habitat. Much of the poaching (not all) is based either on poverty or on property issues, both of which really need both the animal/wildlife and human rights people to come together. Both of them have one common enemy--an apathetic government and poachers and others who wish to exploit everything possible.
