Seminar 2021/22-3 Human / Wildlife Conflict Management and Mitigation – “Belling the Cat”

Regrettably the recording of this seminar was not properly converted by Zoom. We very much apologize for this technical mishap and the poor technical quality.

In any human-wildlife conflict management the key stake-holders are “the wildlife in conflict” with “the human” in a given “environment”.

The generic approach is stereotyped by managing or mitigating the wildlife and maintaining or modifying the environment without much interference on the key stake-holder , human.

This topic explores the endless possibilities in the enviro-socio-economic aspects, and the high relevance and effectiveness in the current and coming days on intelligently addressing this key stake-holder while designing & implementing conflict management & mitigation plans.
