Community-based policing and conservation guardianship
Community-based policing and guardianship
Conservation crime science offers discrete activities that can be implemented by police, guardians, and other authorities in support of situational crime prevention. Conservation social science can produce novel insight about the social systems and perceptions that facilitate the acceptance of wildlife crime in protected areas, and design stakeholder supported solutions to reduce the social acceptance of wildlife crime.
This research focus involves collaborations with universities, wildlife agencies, and international conservation organizations.
