While wildlife has survived alongside humans for centuries in the region, continuing development, population growth and intensification of agriculture are putting increased pressure on this always-precarious relationship.

It is always difficult to balance wildlife and human intervention. But I fear, eventually the wildlife will be lost. Very Sad!

Photos are so telling. Wish awareness would increase for every human being so that we can start to reverse the animal deaths, encroachment, contamination and allow Nature to take over again, Her ways are best.

What a great article and fabulous pictures. I hope that the balance between man and biodiverse nature can be maintained, or it changes in favour of nature. With so many species only found in this one small area of our planet, it is important that it be preserved.
