This chapter examines two local collaborative initiatives in southwestern Alberta that sought to engage wildlife scientists, ranchers, conservation organizations, and other stakeholders to reduce conflicts between wolves and ranchers and conserve wolves on and around ranchlands. Both initiatives made initial progress toward their goals, but neither managed to effect substantial long-term improvements. We use the policy sciences framework and criteria to evaluate the decision-making processes of these initiatives and draw lessons for wolf conservation in southwestern Alberta and other settings at the interface between public lands and ranch lands.
