Towards human-carnivore coexistence


Human-wildlife conflict is a major driver of carnivore population decline. Ultimately, managing livestock-carnivore contact in human-dominated landscapes may be the key to reversing these global declines, but practical tools that promote coexistence between carnivores, humans and their livestock are in short supply.

My research focuses on addressing these issues in the real world, and this page has been set up to share my experiences and to comment generally on human-wildlife conflict research and action, with the aim of finding and promoting solutions to these critical issues.

I have a joint research position with the Centre for Ecosystem Science at the University of New South Wales, and Taronga Conservation Society Australia, and I am also a Research Associate at the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust. Obviously my views are, well, my views, and they don’t necessarily represent those of my employers and affiliates.

To support my work, please consider spreading the word or donating directly to our human-wildlife conflict research and action.

Many thanks,
