Tim Snow, consultant in the fields of wildlife poisoning prevention and conflict management, as well as in all forms of wildlife management released a study on “A Systems-Thinking Based Evaluation of Predator Conflict Management on Selected South African Farms”. Who is Tim Snow?
Through evaluation of predator conflict management methods from a systems thinking perspective, and by probing learning processes, the shortcomings or failure of inappropriate management responses to conflict situations were shown to exacerbate conflicts. Contrarily, it was illustrated that application of systems thinking and a process of addressing the root cause of conflict issues in predator conflict management, was a longer term solution. The study illustrated that application of long term proactive prevention and conflict avoidance principles, can offer long term solutions for predator conflict managers. Read the full study.
