Andrea Kuchy, Oregon State University, presents “Rhinoceros Poaching: Conservation Crisis or Conservation Crime?” during the New Frontiers and Innovations in Human Dimensions of Wildlife Research in Africa Session II.
Across Africa, many forces are causing an increase in human interactions with wildlife. Growing human activity like infrastructure development, tourism growth, and extractive resource use combined with a shifting climate and degradation of soil, water, and air creates challenges in maintaining biodiversity while promoting human wellbeing. Human dimensions (i.e., applied social science) approaches to conservation and wild-life management are proactive responses to these complex issues. These two special conference sessions will explore how social science theories and methods can help understand and address the challenges and complexities of wildlife both coexisting with and impacting on humans in natural and human dominated landscapes in Africa.
