Of conflict and co-existence
In British Columbia, conflict between humans and black bears is on the rise. In the past few months black bears have been spotted around Victoria, including on our very own campus.
Conservation scientist Lauren Eckert collects data on black bears alongside data regarding the values, beliefs and opinions that drive their human neighbours. In this Continuing Studies Deans’ Lecture, she explains how her work helps to promote human-wildlife co-existence.
Lauren is a PhD candidate in Chris Darimont’s Applied Conservation Science Lab.
