Large animals have large impacts
Due to their high energy demand, large-bodied species can strongly influence ecosystem dynamics. Yet, their impact in ecosystems is often in conflict with human interests.
Our research group, LARGE, is committed to knowledge production to meet common goals for a sustainable management of large-bodied species and mitigating wildlife-human conflicts.
Conduct scientific studies on large-bodied animals and their interactions with other species, including humans, providing high-valued knowledge for management and conservation.
Assess and evaluate management actions aimed at large-bodied species and related conflicts of interest.
Synthesize and disseminate scientific knowledge on large- bodied animals to management, stakeholders, the scientific community and the public.
