The elephant in the room – why wildlife is important

How does climate change affect wildlife? An how can we promote coexistence between humans and other species? Anna Treydte studies the interaction between wild animals and humans – listen to her seminar during ForskarFredag!

Large wildlife species are confined to protected areas such as National Parks or Reserves, but often their home range and habitat requirements are much larger than what protected areas can provide. In addition, climate change and increasing human population sizes make the conditions even more difficult for these large animal species.

Anna Treydte is a researcher in nature and environmental management at Stockholm University. Her research focuses on the interaction between wildlife species and humans and she is trying to predict when and where conflicts might occur and how to prevent those in the future. Here is what Anna says about her work:

I work globally on understanding movement dynamics of wild animals such as African and Asian elephants in tropical countries but also on predator species such as wolves in Europe. I use a variety of data collection methods, from interviews with local communities to GPS collars and mapping, combining social with ecological approaches to promote a sustainable use of our natural resources in the future.
