Jharkhand ranks among the highest in terms of human casualties during man-elephant conflicts. THREE REASONS why the jumbos are entering human space:

> Forest cover might have increased in the state but animal habitats have degraded in the past one decade.

> Elephants are facing food scarcity owing to thinning of bamboo and grass canopy. Elephant calves are gradually turning into grain eaters which is a cause of big concern.

> They are fast losing their traditional movement routes due to construction of roadways and mining activities
