9780521825054: People and Wildlife, Conflict or Co-existence? (Conservation Biology)

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.

Book Description:

Conflict between people and wildlife is a major emerging conservation issue that is difficult to resolve. A wide array of wildlife species, from elephants to predatory birds, threaten human lives and livelihoods and are killed by people for this reason. Some of these species are common pests; unfortunately, others are threatened with extinction. This book discusses whether, and how, coexistence of people and endangered wildlife may be encouraged, using measures such as novel and traditional farming methods, compensation, sustainable hunting and ecotourism.

Simon Thirgood is Science Leader of the Ecology of Grazed Ecosystems Programme at the Macaulay Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Human-wildlife conflict is a major issue in conservation. As people encroach into natural habitats, and as conservation efforts restore wildlife to areas where they may have been absent for generations, contact between people and wild animals is growing. Some species, even the beautiful and 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. Historically, people have responded to these threats by killing wildlife wherever possible, and this has led to the endangerment of many species that are difficult neighbours. The urgent need to conserve such species, however, demands coexistence of people and endangered wildlife. This book presents a variety of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, including novel and traditional farming practices, offsetting the costs of wildlife damage through hunting and tourism, and the development of local and national policies.
