Human-wildlife conflict is a major issue in conservation. As people encroach into natural habitats, and as conservation efforts restore wildlife to areas where they may have been absent for generations, contact between people and wild animals is growing. Some species, even the beautiful and endangered, can have serious impacts on human lives and livelihoods. Tigers kill people, elephants destroy crops and African wild dogs devastate sheep herds left unattended. Historically, people have responded to these threats by killing wildlife wherever possible, and this has led to the endangerment of many species that are difficult neighbours. The urgent need to conserve such species, however, demands coexistence of people and endangered wildlife. This book presents a variety of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts, including novel and traditional farming practices, offsetting the costs of wildlife damage through hunting and tourism, and the development of local and national policies.

'... this volume is remarkably useful to specialists in a variety of research areas. it is a very easy read, and should be mandatory for classes in conservation biology or public policy in terms of wildlife.' Journal of Mammalian Evolution
'... a balanced view of issues relating to both the conservation of endangered species, and the economic, social and welfare considerations. This volume is a useful review of much of the current work and future direction in the field.' The Geographical Journal
