Section Interactions Homme - Faune sauvage

My interest in human-wildlife interactions have taken me around the world from tropical rainforests to arid deserts, enabling me to work with olive Ridley sea turtles (Costa Rica), common woolly monkeys (Ecuador), meerkats and Damaraland mole-rats (South Africa), large predators (Botswana), chacma baboons (Namibia) and spotted hyenas (Kenya). My interest in conservation has grown along with the ever-increasing conflicts between humans and wildlife.
