HYDERABAD: In the wake of rising incidents of poaching of spotted deer and wild boars, University of Hyderabad administration is mulling to create conservation zones on its campus for better protection of wildlife.
UoH VC professor Appa Rao Podile said that the university has green zones spread over about 300 acres as per the university’s master plan. These green zones are the primary wooded areas on the campus.
Professor Podile said that as of now wildlife on campus is not located at one place and keeps moving in and out of the wooded areas.
He said that one way to prevent untoward incidents is to contain the wildlife in these green zones, probably by erecting a fence around these zones. With no human interference, the animals can stay safe inside the zones.
This move will also help in safeguarding attacks on humans on the campus which has also become a problem.
