Ignoring Nature No More

This chapter examines the three challenges faced by reintroduction practitioners in dealing with public perceptions of, and engagement with, species restorations. These are: (1) a biased focus on large-bodied charismatic species; (2) potential human–wildlife conflict in the restoration of keystone species; and (3) the need to acknowledge and adapt restoration targets to a human-modified world.

Keywords:   species reintroduction, species restoration, human–wildlife conflict, conservation management
