Subject: HUMAN-WILDLIFE CONFLICT MANAGEMENT SHORT COURSE (ONLINE)
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Developing solutions for human-wildlife conflict is considered to be one of the most challenging tasks for wildlife management agencies around the world. Like all real-world problems, addressing human-wildlife conflict requires transdisciplinary thinking and combining knowledge in new and interesting ways. This course is designed to encourage participants to think holistically about human-wildlife conflict and conflict management and provide experience for developing human-wildlife conflict management plans.
DATES: October 5-9, 2020
FORMAT: Participants will study carefully selected peer-reviewed articles, gray literature, and watch prerecorded lectures in our online learning system. Dr. Can will then work with participants individually and in small groups to critically examine some existing human-wildlife conflict management plans. Participants that live in times zones that limit participation in live sessions will have the opportunity to watch these recorded meetings at a later date. Dr. Can will end each day by facilitating a question and answer session and provide a take home evaluation. Lastly, on Days 3-5, Dr. Can will be available to meet with participants for one-on-one video session to discuss course material and personal projects.
