Image of Elephant-Human conflict wins Wildlife Photography Award.

An image of a mother and baby Elephant being driven away by villagers in West Bengal armed with fire-crackers and burning tar balls has won Sanctuary Magazine's Wildlife Photography Awards for 2017. The image, taken by photographer Biplab Hazra, was taken in the Bankura District of West Benga, but is typical of the conflict with Humans experienced by Elephants across many parts of India, driven by rising Human populations.

Image entitled 'Hell is Here' depicting Elephants under attack by villagers in West Bengal. Biplap Hazra/Sanctuary Magazine.

The population of India has risen from 376 million in 1950 to  1339 million today, fuelling an expansion of both urban and agricultural land use into former wilderness areas. Many animals will simply flee such incursions, or, if unable to, are likely to end up in the cooking pots of hungry villagers. Elephants, however, are a somewhat different proposition. They are large animals, not used to being challenged by other animals in their home ranges, and typically live in matriarchal herds of up to a hundred, with herds holding large territories, criss-crossed by Elephant trails. A herd of Elephants encountering a new Human settlement, particularly a poorly defended structure, are unlikely to attempt to go round it, and are quite likely to maximise the damage they cause to show their displeasure.

  4. Nice shoes I bought these shoes for my wife and I for running and other outdoor activities because I naturally run up on my forefoot and I hate wearing shoes with all the extra padding that only adds bulk. We have had them for several months now and I no longer get shin splints when I run and find that I like walking around barefoot (real barefoot) much more now.

  44. I'm Tonia Anderson by name, I am from the States, Suffolk county to be precise. I am here today to testify of the good works LORD ZAKUZA has done in my life, I never knew great men still exist until I found him. I have been suffering from heart break for the past 3 years, my partner who I invested on cheated on me with my best friend on my matrimonial bed, I was yet to recover from this terrible shock until I meant LORD ZAKUZA, a friend of mine directed me to him , I doubted him at first but as things went further, I had to give him my trust and did exactly as he told me to do. Ever since then, I have been happy all my life and my love life with my partner has been so wonderful. You can also need his help and here's his contact information.
