Environmental factors are starting to have a huge impact on people and animals. Both from climate change, changing of human lifestyles will inevitably affect the lives of wildlife. The Green Peafowl is a native animal of Thailand and the countries of the Mekong River Basin. Green Peafowl has a role as an animal that has a long history with human in the region. But with the changes, the number of Green Peafowl in southern China, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia has greatly decreased. In some countries, there are no reports of Green Peafowl sightings but in the northern part of Thailand especially the forests of Phayao, Lamphun or the western forests such as Huai Kha Khaeng can also be seen them.

In Phayao Province, Green Peafowl are found in the fields of rice fields in the boundaries adjacent to the forest. Green Peafowl are so numerous that from ancient sacred animals that have had a good relationship with humans, have turned into pests that destroy agricultural crops. Many villagers are suffering from the loss of income from the Green Peafowl from the forest to eat agricultural crops. It represents a losing balance in both dimensions of the protected species listed on The International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List as endangered species. But the other dimension is the abundance of wildlife that destroys farmers' crops.
