New Zealand’s Biodiversity Crisis: The Role of Behavioral Science to Stop the Decline -
May 21, 2019 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Presented by Edy MacDonald, PhD
Like California, New Zealand’s biodiversity continues to decline. New Zealand’s unique flora and fauna has been severely impacted by introduced mammalian predators and modified landscapes. Utilizing behavioral science research, New Zealand’s Department of Conservation is focusing on the role people can play in mitigating the decline. Case studies will include human-animal conflict, domestic cats and dogs, forest visitors spreading pathogens, and activating urban residents.
