Around the world, large carnivores face extreme threats to their survival in landscapes where they live alongside human populations. Conserving these magnificent species requires a balanced approach that respectfully integrates the needs of both local people and wildlife. Visiting from Tanzania, African People & Wildlife CEO, Dr. Laly Lichtenfeld, shared her on-the-ground experiences conserving Tanzania’s big cats in partnership with the Maasai people and, most recently, the US Forest Service. She discussed the prevention of human-wildlife conflicts and the organic development of her team’s internationally recognized, four-step model for community-driven conservation that is widely applicable in landscapes where people and wildlife interact, highlighting contributions of APW’s evolving technical partnership with the US Forest Service toward these ends.
