Human-Wildlife Conflicts in China

Can you imagine how close you are to wild animals?

With the expansion of the human footprint, interactions between wild animals and humans are becoming more and more frequent. Negative forms of these interactions turn into human-wildlife conflicts (HWC), which can greatly influence human health, safety, and welfare. In return, human responses to these conflicts, such as lethal control programs, have become one of the most significant threats to wildlife. Thus, HWCs are a complex and urgent issue that needs to be solved.

The principal investigator of the project is Mengxi Kou.
