Tracking changing human-nonhuman relationships

Humans, livestock, wildlife

Landscape change does not simply impact peace and conflict between humans, it also impacts relationships between humans and the nonhuman world. Our research advances knowledge of how interactions between people, livestock, and wildlife are changing in ecosystems affected by landscape change. We are especially concerned with intensified or unusual human-wildlife conflict.

Key research projects in this area include:

  • Decolonising human-wildlife conflict through oral histories of coexistence

Some of our relevant outputs include:

In September 2020, we presented early findings of our human-wildlife conflict research at the biennial meeting of the Political Ecology Network as part of a panel on Convivial Conservation. A recording of the presentation is available below.
