Will's research explores how local people can contribute to protected area law enforcement.
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.
Detecting deterrence from patrol data
We test a robust, simple metric for monitoring patrol effectiveness using a mechanistic model of law‐breaking and law enforcement
Conservation conflicts: Behavioural threats, frames, and intervention recommendations
The choice of conflict management interventions should be based on evidence of their effectiveness, but other factors such as the way a conflict is framed appear to play an important role.

Exploring differences in stakeholders’ perceptions of illegal bird trapping in Cyprus
Cyprus is a hotspot for illegal bird trapping, but conservation efforts have been hindered by a lack of understanding between the local trapping community and the environmental NGOs.
Searching for Snares – how much effort is enough?
Harriet presented preliminary findings from her fieldwork at the the Asian-Pacific Chapter Meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation.
The influence of risk on patterns of illegal activity in a hunted landscape in West Liberia
Sorrel's PhD project uses insights from behavioural psychology and cognitive sciences to design better ways of reducing bushmeat use in West Africa.
Sorrel's research explores ways to tackle the bushmeat hunting crisis in West Africa.
From poachers to protectors: engaging local communities in solutions to illegal wildlife trade
Combating the surge of illegal wildlife trade (IWT) devastating wildlife populations is an urgent global priority for conservation. Here we set out a conceptual framework to guide efforts to effectively combat IWT through actions at community level.
