An increasing number of man-animal conflicts in Tamil Nadu has prompted the State Government to come out with a plan to set up fodder resources in forest areas, so that wildlife do not foray into human habitations in search of food.

The proposal took seed after a suggestion by the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, Gautam Dey, following which the Government accorded administrative approval for Rs 2,087 lakh on December 14 to create the resources within a five year period between 2011-12 and 2015-16.

This plan is based on various factors such as elephant feeding and nursery techniques of planting.
