After being extirpated for over one hundred and fifty years, wolves migrated back to Lower Saxony, Germany since 2008. Their reappearance found mostly sheep farmers unprepared and quickly led to an increase of letal wolf attacks on unprotected livestock. Grazing by sheep is an essential part of conserving high-value extensive grasslands in Lower-Sa...

„Herdenschutz Niedersachsen“ nahm Befürchtungen, dauerhaft installierte wolfsabweisende Zäune seien wilddicht und würden die Landschaft zerschneiden, zum Anlass, eine kleine Feldstudie durchzuführen. Dabei wurden durch kameragestützte Beobachtungen von Weideflächen und Interviews mit Weidetierhaltenden Erkenntnisse gesammelt.

Studying & protecting big cats, elephants and other species in Namibia through citizen science. OUTCOME: Biosphere Expeditions worked in Namibia for twelve years from 2002 until 2014. In that time it played a small role in the establishment of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, at the time the world's largest wildlife conservation area, spanning five southern African countries. It also played a pivotal role in establishing the country's largest leopard conservation research project, working with local ranchers and resolving human-wildlife conflict, which led to a significant reduction in big cats killed in the country. A research station was also built.
