9781597260053: Coexisting with Large Carnivores: Lessons From Greater Yellowstone

As in the rest of the United States, grizzly bears, wolves, and mountain lions in and around Yellowstone National Park were eliminated or reduced decades ago to very low numbers. In recent years, however, populations have begun to recover, leading to encounters between animals and people and, more significantly, to conflicts among people about what to do with these often controversial neighbors.

Coexisting with Large Carnivores presents a close-up look at the socio-political context of large carnivores and their management in western Wyoming south of Yellowstone National Park, including the southern part of what is commonly recognized as the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The book brings together researchers and others who have studied and worked in the region to help untangle some of the highly charged issues associated with large carnivores, their interactions with humans, and the politics that arise from those interactions.

This volume argues that coexistence will be achieved only by a thorough understanding of the human populations involved, their values, attitudes, beliefs, and the institutions through which carnivores and humans are managed. Coexisting with Large Carnivores offers important insights into this complex, dynamic issue and provides a unique overview of issues and strategies for managers, researchers, government officials, ranchers, and everyone else concerned about the management and conservation of large carnivores and the people who live nearby.

Review:

oCoexisting with Large Carnivores provides valuable insights and ideas for reaching common interest solutions to the highly emotional debate over management of large carivores. This book is required reading for anyone who has a stake in the management of wolves, grizzly bears, or mountain lions.o --Kim Barber

oConservation is much more complicated than just getting the science right. Coexisting with Large Carnivores offers a compelling approach for moving forward by harvesting lessons from the past and articulating clear alternatives for the future. This is a must-read for anyone trying to make conservation gains in the 21st century. --Mike Gibeau

While conservationists have finally twigged to the truth that carnivore consrevation is more about understanding human values and behaviours than it is about the science of carnivores, most remain terminally perplexed when it comes to actually grappling with the aehumanae side of the equation. In Coexisting with Large Carnivores, Tim Clark and his colleagues provide an urgently needed map to the tangled, fiercely contested sociopolitical topography of carnivore policy and management. In itself, this is of great value, but the authors go even further by providing a set of robust tools-contextual problem-orientation, practice-based conservation, and collaborative process-to help people of good will find common ground and forge democratic solution to the tough problems thta challenge us all.o --Bart Robinson
