Human-wildlife conflicts are today an integral part of the rural
development discourse. These conflicts often occur when a wild
animal crosses a perceived borderline between nature and culture,
between the domesticated and the wild, and enters into the realms
of the other. This borderline marks a perceived division of spatial
content in our senses of place. Contemporary wildlife conservation
faces serious challenges in trying to form a balance between human
needs and survival of endangered wild animal species, as it is
increasingly taking place in heavily human-affected ecosystems.
This book studies the spatial dimensions of human-wildlife
conflicts in borderland communities in the Liwale district,
Tanzania, where humans and free roaming wild animals share space.
The author investigates the inclusion and exclusion of certain wild
animal species from particular types of spaces and explains the
causes of human-wildlife conflicts through locally perceived
nature-culture borderlands. Wild animals which intrude into
domesticated spaces become subjects 'out of space' and challenge
the total control of humans over natural elements in these spaces.
