Wolves Across Borders - Conference on wolf ecology and management

Goal: We are organizing the conference, Wolves Across Borders, to be held in Scandinavia in May, 2022. Wolves Across Borders will bring together people active in wolf research, management, conservation, and conflict resolution.

Wolves have always been at the center of human-wildlife conflicts, and their management is politically polarized and contentious. Furthermore, the world’s wolf population ranges across an incredibly diverse collection of countries which represent a broad spectrum of cultures, environments, economies, and government structures. This is especially true in Eurasia, where wolves cross between the borders of over 50 different nations. Variation in cultural values, political objectives, monitoring strategies, and knowledge base about local wolf populations makes cross-border management complex. Our goal is to facilitate open conversation and knowledge exchange between nations that support wolf populations and the researchers, managers, non-profits, and stakeholders that work with wolf ecology, management, and conflict resolution.

We are still accepting workshop proposals for the upcoming Wolves Across Borders Conference!
Workshops may be led by either individuals or teams, and can cover any topic of your choice. Potential workshop styles include, but are not limited to, teaching a new skill, introducing and discussing new topics or ideas, or bringing people together to brainstorm solutions to problems (e.g., management related, methodology based, etc.). Workshops will occur during the conference and will be allotted between 1 and 2 hours, depending on demand.
Individuals are more than welcome to submit and abstract for both a presentation and a workshop. Please only submit a proposal if you plan to organize and lead the workshop.
The deadline for workshop abstract submission is June 30, 2021. Please submit your proposal via the Abstract Submission page on our website at:

We are currently seeking nominations for Plenary Speakers at the upcoming Wolves Across Borders Conference! We welcome all recommendations, but are especially seeking nominations for the following categories:
1) Ecology – We are seeking two plenary speakers to provide overviews on the historic, present, and future of wolf ecology and research with an emphasis on cross-cultural and cross-border collaboration.
2) Management – We are seeking a manager, researcher, or policy maker who can present an in depth case study of cross-border management and collaboration within Europe/Asia. As this is a case study on cross-border collaboration, we welcome nominations of groups as well (i.e., more than one person can present during the talk).
Nominate yourself, a member of your working group, or a person who you think would be a good fit! Nominations will remain anonymous. Please send the name, contact information, and short description of the person/case study you wish to nominate to wolves.across.borders@gmail.com
