Dear colleague

 

Here are some great news, updates and invitations we would like to share with you:

 

International recognition for the role of HWI in biodiversity conservation

The HWIWG has taken an active part in the high profile first International Conference on Human-Wildlife Conflict and Coexistence | IUCN SSC Human-Wildlife Conflict Task Force (hwcconference.org) at the University of Oxford, UK (30th March- 1st April). We led a very dynamic Interactive Session (Human-wildlife interactions in conservation translocations: developing guidelines) and we introduced our HWIWG in the IUCN SSC Networking Meeting, which was praised by colleagues for its interdisciplinarity and work across taxa.  Photos and related resources on our website HWIWG presence at the International Conference on Human-Wildlife Conflict and Coexistence, Oxford (iucn-ctsg-hwi.wixsite.com) . The Conference highlighted the key role that human-wildlife interactions play in biodiversity conservation, now recognised by the COP15 UN Biodiversity Conference in 2022. HWIs feature heavily in many of the new landmark Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework 23 targets.   


Inviting case studies for the extended Guidance on HWI in Conservation Translocations

We continue to develop an extended version of our Guidelines to Facilitate Human-Wildlife Interactions in Conservation Translocations 2022 paper, more in depth and populated with more case studies from the field, with the aim to serve as a companion to the IUCN/SSC CTSG Conservation Translocations Guidelines of 2013.  As we incorporate the feedback we received so far, we would like to invite case studies from the field.  We are looking for case studies that exemplify any of the areas highlighted by the Guidelines paper.  If you would like to contribute to the extended version, please get in touch.  We really appreciate your help! 

 

CTSG Global Perspectives invites contributions

The CTSG Global Conservation Translocation Perspectives publication Global conservation translocation perspectives: 2021 | IUCN SSC Conservation Translocation Specialist Group (iucn-ctsg.org) showcases case studies from around the globe.  The CTSG invites colleagues involved in ongoing conservation translocation projects to contribute case studies for the next issue.  Please get in touch with "Pritpal Soorae" iuc...@gmail.com (Editor) for a new template to help format your contribution.  


Special open access issue relaunch!

Our special issue of Human Dimensions of Animal Translocations in Frontiers of Conservation Science is now complete, with 11 papers including an Editorial setting the stage for the issue.  It features original research  over 4 continents, focusing on diverse species, stakeholders and local communities.  Free to download!

Human dimension issues are commonly overseen or treated lightly in translocation projects, even though the success or failure of the project is intimately tied to community involvement, peer’s acceptance, and stakeholder support. An international group of scientists have been discussing these issues for the last 2 years in an ad hoc group of the IUCN’s Conservation Translocations Specialist Group. We have discussed topics such as positive and negative aspects of human-wildlife interactions, the effect of domestic and feral dogs on conservation translocations, seeking support of religious leaders, ethical issues involved in reintroduction into anthropogenic landscapes, involving all stakeholders in project planning and stewardship, and exit strategies. Themes to consider are how to measure and include the various aspects of human dimensions into a project from its planning and implementation to the exit stages. We plan to write one article as a group, invite specialists from several topics to submit contri

A new HWIWG Directory

The IUCN/SSC CTSG Human-Wildlife Interactions Working Group has just released a new Directory listing information about practitioners, researchers and students working with human dimensions of conservation translocations.  If you would like to join the HWIWG and be added to the Directory, which we share only with HWIWG members, please complete the info below and return it to me:

Conserving Conservationists webinar

...and last but not least, here is the recording of an amazing webinar organised by the IUCN NCUK's Education and Communication working group.  Brittany Sawrey and Jessie Panazzolo presented on how we can better support conservationists, often working in remote environments, dealing with stressful and timely global issues and commonly experiencing imposter syndrome and eco-anxiety https://youtu.be/BuYO1wv2qx0


Soon we will be in touch with our schedule of events for the second half of 2023.  We are making arrangements with very interesting guests who are working with social-environmental aspects connecting communities and wildlife conservation that are relevant to CTs.

Following up from last month’s request for contributions from case studies in conservation translocations that can help us illustrate key areas of interest in human-wildlife interactions, please find a message from Shekhar Kolipaka and Jake Owens, founder members of the HWIWG with more information and a template for collecting the case studies (also attached):

 

Dear Colleague,

 

We hope this letter finds you well and in good spirits. As a valued member of the IUCN/SSC CTSG and Human Wildlife Interactions Working Group, we are reaching out to request your support in enriching our Conservation Translocations Guidelines specifically focusing on the Human Dimension aspect, by contributing relevant case studies.

 

As you may know, we have recently published version 1 of the guidelines[1], which provide a foundation for understanding the importance of the human dimension in conservation translocations. Now, we aim to enhance these guidelines by incorporating more real-life case studies that demonstrate best practices and practical applications within our community.

 

We recognize the wealth of knowledge and expertise among our members, and we firmly believe that your participation will significantly contribute to the collective wisdom of our community. Your insights and experiences have the power to inspire others, foster learning, and promote innovation in the field.

 

Therefore, we kindly request you to share any case studies or success stories that highlight the human dimension in conservation translocations. We are particularly interested in examples that demonstrate:

1. Stakeholder Engagement: How were stakeholders involved and engaged in the planning and implementation of conservation translocations? What challenges or successes were encountered in this process?

2. Community Involvement: How were local communities engaged and informed about the translocation program? Did the program have any positive impacts on the community? Were there any collaborative efforts to address community concerns or needs?

3. Cultural Considerations: Did the program take into account the social and cultural context of the project area? Were there any challenges or conflicts arising from cultural differences or beliefs, and how were they addressed?

4. Communication and Education: Describe the strategies employed to communicate and educate various stakeholders about the translocation program. Were there any specific initiatives undertaken to raise awareness and support for the program?

5. Benefits and Challenges: What were the positive outcomes and benefits for local communities resulting from the translocation program? Were there any unexpected challenges or negative impacts encountered during the process?

 

We believe that your case studies will be instrumental in expanding our understanding of the human dimension in conservation translocations and improving our guidelines. Your valuable contributions will be duly acknowledged and credited.

 

If you are interested in contributing or have any questions, please respond back to Jake Owens (jake....@lacity.org). We kindly request completed case studies be submitted by August 18, allowing us sufficient time to review and incorporate them into the extended guidelines.

 

Thank you in advance for your willingness to share your experiences and contribute to the growth of our community. Should you have any questions or require further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to Jake. We look forward to receiving your insightful case studies.

 

Warm regards,

    Dear colleague

    Thank you for joining us in this series of discussions on social equity and wellbeing of local communities in relation to conservation translocation projects. If you were able to join us during the live events or will watch them for the first time now, these were thought-provoking sessions full of insightful contributions from remarkable researchers, which resonated with participants.  The topics and key questions raised by them, based on their experiences and expertise, are transferable to conservation translocation projects across the globe,  with consideration for the uniqueness of context.  I hope you find these relevant and inspiring for your own practice, and please get in touch with the leads directly if you wish to ask more questions or further the contact (emails below).   These events inspired other topics that we would like to discuss further... more to come next year!  Links to the recordings are below.
