About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first human-wildlife conflict (HWC) book to focus on the marine system, exploring the complexity of HWC in marine-based conservation through the 'Level of Conflict' model, a theoretical yet highly practical tool developed in the peace-building field.
- Author BiographyDr Megan Draheim is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech's Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability, located outside of Washington, D.C, where she teaches in the Masters of Natural Resource program. Her focus is on human-wildlife interactions (both positive and negative) in marine and terrestrial systems and how these can help or hurt conservation. Her research has ranged from marine mammal tourism in the Dominican Republic to urban coyotes outside of Denver, Colorado. She received her PhD from George Mason University's Department of Environmental Science and Policy, an interdisciplinary program that gives equal weight to natural science, social science, and policy. Francine Madden is the co-Founder and Executive Director of the Human-Wildlife Conflict Collaboration-a nonprofit organization integrating conservation conflict transformation strategies in wildlife conservation efforts. Francine has successfully facilitated conflict intervention, planning, and capacity building processes in some of the world's most fragile hotspots.
