Project Coyote Science Advisory Board Member Dr. Adrian Treves founded the Carnivore Coexistence Lab at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research on how to balance human needs with wildlife conservation entails deep exploration of people’s conflicts with large carnivores, with a particular focus on livestock predation in the USA and abroad. This line of inquiry includes livestock husbandry, wildlife management, human and carnivore behavior, and methods for preventing human-carnivore conflicts. In this free webinar, Adrian presented a critical evaluation of the legal and illegal killing of native predators, discussed whether scientific evidence supports the hypothesized benefits of predator-killing policies, and gave a scientific perspective on future policy recommendations.
