Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, March 8th at 7:00 PM for this public program.
Many human and nonhuman animal populations live in increasingly overlapping habitats and may even compete for resources such as food. Certain species of primates and other wildlife share urban and agricultural spaces with people, creating conflict that is a concern for both human well-being and wildlife conservation. What if these ‘pests’ are also endangered species? How is such conflict studied from both cultural and ecological perspectives?
PVAS AmeriCorps volunteer, Alison Zak, recently studied the crop-raiding conflict between wildlife and farmers in Sulawesi, Indonesia for her MA degree in anthropology. She will share an overview of the field of human-wildlife conflict, photographs from her camera trap research, and insights from interviews conducted during her fieldwork.
This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
