Human-felid conflict is one the the most urgent issues facing big-cat conservation across the globe. Join Samantha Helle, Dr. Aditi Sharma, and Nelanie La Cruz as they discuss tiger, leopard, jaguar, and puma conservation. We will travel across the globe (virtually) to discuss the different social, political, and ecological contexts of human-big cat conflicts in Guyana, India, and Nepal.
Nelanie La Cruz has performed human-jaguar and human-puma conflict research as a Research Officer for the Guyana Wildlife Conservation and Management Commission.
Dr. Aditi Sharma is the Senior Veterinary Officer in Rajaji Tiger Reserve Uttarakhand Forest Department in India, with over 17 years experience in the wildlife sector.
Samantha Helle is a Conservation Biologist from the USA who has been working on tiger conservation and human-wildlife conflict mitigation in Nepal since 2014. Let's talk big cats and what saving them looks like on the ground and across the world.
