The Annual CTEC Symposium brings together researchers, professionals, educators, and students to learn about and become involved in the application of new approaches to conservation conflicts. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about conservation conflict transformation, bridging conflicts between agriculture and conservation, managing human-wildlife conflicts, reducing conflicts over land use and biodiversity, and reducing human conflicts that undermine conservation and wildlife management.

Keynote Speaker: Adrian Treves

Rethinking biodiversity preservation and conservation conflicts

Adrian Treves earned his PhD at Harvard University in 1997 and is now a professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research focuses on ecology, law, and agroecosystems where crop and livestock production overlap carnivore habitat. He and his students work to understand and manage the balance between human needs and carnivore conservation. He has authored >100 scientific papers on predator-prey ecology or conservation. Most recently Dr. Treves has been writing and speaking on the public trust doctrine and intergenerational equity.
