With Puri’s green shelterbelt destroyed, human-animal conflicts could increase

Damage to Puri’s Balukhanda reserved forest after Cyclone Fani increases chances of human-animal conflict.
With the green shelterbelt gone, animals in the region such as spotted deer, striped hyenas, honey badger, porcupine, mongoose and wild cats are in danger.
Destruction of the shelterbelt is also lowering farm yields as sandy and saline winds are impacting soil fertility.
