Large African Carnivores in Fenced Systems

Matthew Solberg

Join us for a talk about human-carnivore conflict in Namibia and some of the laws and practices affecting this issue. Matthew will discuss carnivore ecology, with a focus on leopards and cheetahs, how their behaviors are shaped by fenced systems, and what work is being done to conserve these large carnivores. He will talk about the human dimensions of carnivore conservation (views of large carnivores, myths, misunderstandings, etc.) and management regimes in Namibia that work to mitigate conflict between large African carnivores and humans.

Biography: 
Matthew Solberg is a student in the Master of Science in Environmental Education program at Southern Oregon University.  Prior to his role as a student, Matthew conducted research in human-wildlife conflict in Namibia.  His interest in human dimensions of wildlife conservation grew as he spent time with the San Bushman of Namibia, working to trap and relocate large African carnivores in close proximity to livestock.  Matthew also has experience researching clans of spotted hyena in Malawi and teaching in Sierra Leone, West Africa, through service with the Peace Corps.
