Using mixed methods to understand sensitive wildlife poisoning behaviours in northern Cambodia

Using the theory of planned behaviour, informant interviews and focus group discussions, we investigated drivers of wildlife poisoning across ten communities in northern Cambodia.

Estimating hunting prevalence and reliance on wild meat in Cambodia’s Eastern Plains

We assessed hunter behaviour, knowledge of rules, and perceptions of patrols amongst 705 households living within Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary, Cambodia

Experimentally assessing the effect of search effort on snare detectability

Using an experimental approach, we investigated the effect of search effort, habitat, season, and team on rangers' detection of snares in a tropical forest landscape. Our results suggest that snare detectability in tropical forest landscapes is likely to be low, and may not improve dramatically with increased search effort.

Improving Environmental Interventions by Understanding Information Flows

Understanding the structure of information flow in a group, using tools such as social network analysis, can offer important insights for conservation interventions which aim to change human behaviour. This review introduces conservation researchers and practitioners to key concepts underpinning information flows and complex contagions for interventions targeting networks of individuals.

Stopping wildlife poisoning in Cambodia
