In this bonus episode, we take you live to the International Wolf Symposium, on October 11th, for a talk by Matthew Collins, Western Landowners Alliance’s Working Wild Challenge program associate. Before Matt joined WLA, he conducted research into how local groups, called place-based collaboratives, helped improve adoption of practices that reduce conflict between livestock and large carnivores while pursuing a masters degree at Colorado State University.
At the International Wolf Symposium, Matt had 15 minutes to present his entire masters thesis project to a packed room. We think he knocked it out of the park. And fortunately, On Land editor-in-chief Louis Wertz was there to record it.
You can find Matt's powerpoint presentation and other supporting info in the show notes on our website, onland.westernlandowners.org/podcast/
Many thanks to Zach Altman, Louis Wertz, Matt Collins and the team at the International Wolf Symposium for making this episode possible.
