ANIMAL DIVERSITY OF UNPROTECTED FOREST AREAS OF SAGAR (M.P.)
Dr. Mukesh Kumar Napit*
Wild life conservation includes all human efforts to preserve wild animals from extinction. It involves the protection and wise management of wild species and their environment. Some species have become extinct due to natural causes but the greatest danger to wild life result from human activities. Thus we ourselves have created this need for wild life conservation. The progress of man throughout has been beneficial for the human race but it is the wild that has suffered through the years. Invention of sophisticated weapons, industrialization, urbanization, ever increasing human population have been some of the major causes for the dwindle of our once rich wild life resource. Hunting, clearing of forests, draining of swamps and damming of rivers for irrigation and industry, this is what we appraise of man’s progress. These activities have vastly reduced the natural habitats of our wild life and many species are endangered or nearly extinct.
