Kosi corridor of Corbett Landscape is taken to examine the pattern of human- felid conflict and its consequence and implications for the long term persistence of tiger (Panthera tigris) Questionnaire survey and data collection of tiger pug mark and scats were collected from the area. Results revealed that tigris caused greater economic losses and indicate the livestock predation. While the pug marks sign and scats were indicate the frequent movement in human dominated area. But still tiger is so intelligent animal are very able to maintain a good balance between man and its survival. With Kosi corridor from Mohan to Ramnagar the great disturbance are blooming day by day regularly. It is an negative and anti ecological alarm for conservation point of view. Otherwise the remaining bit of connectivity for vital need of tiger (genetic viability) will vanish very soon for both the forest.
