Discussions in Human-Wildlife Conflicts and Coexistence - It is critical that we understand factors creating and affecting human-wildlife interactions so that humans and wildlife may coexist. Globally, the human population will continue to increase in size for the foreseeable future. Therefore, human-wildlife conflicts will continue as we encroach on their habitats and willingly or unwillingly share our spaces. Human-wildlife interactions are often framed as negative but, in this course, we will also seek out examples of positive interactions. Being able to describe the positive aspects of wildlife will help educators, resource managers, and conservationists to change some of the negative perceptions of wildlife and to improve outcomes during human-wildlife interactions. Day and time will be determined in consultation with those who enroll.
