How do different cultural understandings and relationships with animals affect conservation practices? In this interdisciplinary event, anthropologists, biologists and conservationists will demonstrate the interconnections between the lives of people and animals in relation to conservation and ecosystem management. Through films, talks and exhibitions, participants will explore current case studies which investigate the often competing needs of wildlife and interrelated groups such as: local communities, subsistence farmers, hunter gatherers, NGOs, eco-tourism companies and commercial enterprises.
