The Deputy Chief Forest Conservator said, “The main objective of this workshop is to connect the fragmented forests. For this, we will software that can identify the corridor area for wildlife.”

“However, people are building settlements by occupying the way of wildlife movement. There is a conflict between wildlife, especially elephants and humans because animals behave cruelty when humans make obstacles in their way,” he continued.

Dr. Jaglul Hossain further said,  “After the independence of the country, Father of the Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman enacted the first Wildlife Conservation Act to protect the existence of the country and its territory. Because when there is no eco-balance between humans and animals on earth, nature causes adverse reactions.”

At the same time, he opined, “There need for a bypass road to protect the wildlife corridors, if necessary. Then vehicles will move on the road. On the other hand, wildlife will travel secretly over the route to their destination.”
