Harrison Carter, Conservation Biologist
I am excited by wicked problems.
Conserving wildlife in the Anthropocene is just that, a wicked problem. Dynamic interactions between environmental, ecological and socio-political forces challenge the effective potential for planned solutions. Understanding how wildlife and humans interact has never been more important to generate progressively fluid and resilient models for coexistence.
I am currently interested in preventing venomous snakebites across the tropics. Saving human lives, and reducing brutal retaliation toward snakes. Specifically, I am using cross-disciplinarian approaches to explore human factors that affect adoption of snakebite preventatives; supporting the World Health Organisation’s objective to half snakebite fatalities by 2030.
