Human Wildlife Conflict

(Open Group)

Human-wildlife conflict (HWC) refers to all cases in which interactions between humans and wildlife lead to negative impact on both sides through fear, injuries, death, and loss of property or livelihoods. If you are interested in finding out more before joining in the discussion, Nilanga Jayasinghe offers us a great introduction to HWC in her article Wired for solutions: using technology to reduce human-wildlife conflict.  

Nilanga Jayasinghe and Femke Hilderink are the Group Managers for the Human-Wildlife Conflict Group. If you have any questions or suggestions about this group, please get in touch with them through their profiles.
