    Well if the local populace were able to access enough fertile arable land (not given over to monocultures and/or mining concerns etc.), were not marginalised into poverty stricken areas on the edge of (and sometimes unofficially within), national parks/wilderness areas and had a decent standard of living (under a state welfare system), many of the problems (incl. poaching, man-eating etc.), could be properly addressed..the truth is that our wildlife is also the victim of poverty..
