Assessment of the people-predator conflict through thematic PRA in the surroundings of Waza National Park, Cameroon (PLA 41)
Investigating levels of livestock predation in villages around a National Park in Cameroon, Participatory Rural Appraisal techniques were used to assess local knowledge of carnivore species and whether this had a correlation to levels of livestock loss. Results of this analysis, and the benefits and challenges of using such a technique, are presented.
