The Human-Wildlife Conflict Task Force (HWCTF) comprises specialists from a range of disciplines across the natural and social sciences and humanities, and includes e.g. experts in conflict mediation, stakeholder dialogue processes, social psychology, behaviour change and social marketing, behavioural ecology, animal cognition, environmental history, conservation planning, and other topics, as well as a number of experts on various taxonomic groups commonly involved in human-wildlife conflicts, such as elephants, large cats and bears. We are currently not able to invite new members, but look forward to expanding the Task Force in the new IUCN quadrennium after the IUCN World Conservation Congress in September 2021. We will share further news on this nearer the time.
