Welcome! Research interests of the Baldwin lab broadly apply to the realm of wildlife management with a particular focus on resolving human-wildlife conflicts. Expanding human populations have led to increasing interaction with a variety of wildlife species. In many situations, conflict occurs. Many options can exist for mitigating this conflict depending on each specific situation. It is our goal to develop strategies to effectively reduce this conflict while having the least impact on human and wildlife populations. Please check out this website for more information.
