WCT’s Human-Wildlife Interface Management division trains forest staff in reducing collateral damage in situations of negative human-wildlife interactions, and assists Forest Departments in developing long-term conflict mitigation measures. WCT has played a key role in the development of a Human-Tiger Interface Prediction Module, which uses spatial and temporal characteristics of previous interactions and allows the Forest Department to predict potentially sensitive situations in the future.
