Abstract

The data is about the human-wildlife conflict in Bardia - Banke Complex, Nepal. This research was undertaken to investigate the patterns and conflict-causing factors of human killing and injury by large mammals especially by Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), Common leopard (Panthera pardus), and Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris) in the Bardia-Banke Complex of western Nepal. We collected human death records and injuries caused by wildlife between 2019 and (March) 2023, from the regular monitoring record database.
