You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Changing Landscapes by Coalition), key term (i.e. striped bass), or presenter last name (i.e. Weaver). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Fisheries and wildlife management consists of scientific knowledge about the biological components of fisheries and wildlife resources as well as the social, cultural, economic, and political forces that shape conservation policies and decisions. The field of human dimensions of fisheries and wildlife management explores how and why human thought and behavior influences fisheries and wildlife conservation; helps optimize management strategies for fisheries and wildlife populations; and identifies how management strategies impact human-wildlife relations. In the southeastern United States, rapid human population growth and changing human demographics are applying new pressures to fisheries and wildlife populations and management. With these changes arises a critical need for state wildlife agencies to gather and apply human dimensions research into their planning processes to achieve socially and biologically balanced outcomes. This symposium offers insights into the ways human dimensions research can inform management on how to adapt to these social pressures. It will highlight examples of human dimensions research applied to management decisions and facilitate increased interaction among human dimensions researchers and specialists in SEAFWA member states and other conservation related organizations.
