Human-carnivore conflict is a global issue that has broad implications for both carnivore conservation and human well-being. In fact, over three-quarters of the remaining large carnivore species on the planet have populations that are declining and conflict with humans is considered one of their biggest threats. As human populations grow and expand, conflict with carnivores is expected to increase as both parties compete for access to finite natural resources.
The LIVEstock initiative aims to explore the mechanistic drivers of human-carnivore conflict using an interdisciplinary research approach. Our aim is to inform conservation efforts through our research findings and productive collaborations with local communities, government agencies, and academic institutions.
