Human-wildlife interactions and conflicts continue to rise as people build their homes in previously natural areas. Such conflicts can negatively impact both people and wildlife; hence we need to better understand both sides of the human-wildlife conflict equation. That is, we need to understand how wildlife behaves near people and how to change human behavior to better secure attractants from wildlife, with the ultimate goal of reducing conflicts. In this way we can provide real solutions to human-wildlife conflicts and promote coexistence between people and wildlife for the prosperity future wildlife populations and the enjoyment of future generations.
