Human-Rheus monkey conflict at Rampur village uner Monohardi Upazila in Narsingdi district of Bangladesh

Conflicts between humans and non-human primates are recognized as major issues in conservation of primates. Crop damage caused by primates is one of the most wide spread and common examples of human-nonhuman primate conflicts in areas where local people are mainly subsistence farmers. Various forms of human-wildlife conflicts occur with various negative results, including damage to crops and property, habitat destruction, injuries and death of people and wildlife, and livestock depredation. However, in Asia in general and in Bangladesh in particular, conflicts between humans and the Rhesus Macaques are on the increase.
