Conflicts arising from the competition of humans and wildlife for biological resources are as old as humankind. Changes in civil society’s attitudes towards wildlife and the success of conservation management have resulted in wildlife prospering again and returning to areas from where they had disappeared and even spreading to new habitats. This is reigniting old conflicts between humans and wildlife.



This work was financed by the EU 5th Framework Program (5th FP) Project “FRAP” (Development of a procedural Framework for Action Plans to Reconcile conflicts between large vertebrate conservation and the use of biological resources: fisheries and fish-eating vertebrates as a model case), contract number EVK 2-CT-2002-00142-FRAP.
