Caring for Creation: Wolves, People, Domestic Animals, and Deer – Feb 8

February 8, 2022 at 7:30pm via Zoom Webinar
Dr. Adrian Treves, Professor of Environmental Studies, UW-Madison

Coexistence with wildlife has become increasingly important and contentious as humans encroach on traditional wild habitat around our state. Dr. Adrian Treves will address the current debate over wolves and their interactions with people, domestic animals and deer. Building on ecological and social scientific data he and colleagues have collected over two decades, he will discuss our coexistence with wildlife commonly around us. He will explain how to differentiate science from value judgment in claims from agencies and interest groups, and how to distinguish the best wildlife science from the rest following principles of ‘Open Science’. Adrian will also suggest how each of us can help promote a more just and healthy relationship to nature during the present extinction and global crisis.

Adrian Treves is a Professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has been director of the Carnivore Coexistence Lab since 2007. For 27 years, his research has focused on ecology, law, and human dimensions of ecosystems in which crop and livestock ownership overlaps the habitat of carnivores from coyotes up to grizzly bears. Based on his independent research, Adrian advocates for future generations of all life, for scientific integrity, and for sovereign publics worldwide. He studies and speaks about the public trust doctrine and intergenerational equity around the world. He earned his PhD at Harvard University in 1997 and has authored over 130 scientific papers on predator-prey ecology or conservation.
