About the Authors
  • As humans continue to encroach into natural habitats, and conservation efforts restore wildlife to areas where they have been absent, contact between humans and wild animals is growing. Some species, even the endangered, can have serious impacts on human lives and livelihoods. Tigers kill people, elephants destroy crops and African wild dogs devastate sheep herds left unattended. This book presents a variety of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, including novel and traditional farming practices, controlled hunting and tourism, as well as the development of local and national conservation policies.

    • Covers a major, and emerging, conservation issue
    • Applies equally to conservation in developed and developing countries
    • Multi-disciplinary approach, involving ecologists, social scientists, managers and policymakers
