Pathways 2021: Human Dimensions of Wildlife Conference and Training

Life Without Salmon?

September 19-22, 2021 | Kitsap Conference Center | Bremerton, WA


Submissions now open!

For Pathways 2021, we are partnering with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to address the theme, “Life Without Salmon?”Salmon are an icon of the Pacific landscape. Despite conservation efforts, however, the future of the species – and those that depend on salmon for survival – remains in question. With our 2021 theme, we will explore the question: what steps do we take when facing the extinction of a species cornerstone to economic stability, ecological health and regional identity – and what does life look like if conservation fails?

Pathways: Human Dimensions of Wildlife is a conference and training program designed to address the myriad issues that arise as people and wildlife struggle to coexist in a sustainable and healthy manner. In pursuit of Pathways’ mission of increasing the professionalism and effectiveness in the human dimensions of wildlife management field, we continue to address the most pressing issues facing conservation efforts today. We invite your perspectives on this critical topic.

Human Wildlife Interactions: Spring Seminar Series

Due to COVID-19, the HWI seminar series has been paused for the remainder of spring semester and will resume again in the fall. Videos from our first talk by Dr. Neil Carter can be found on our Department Youtube Channel.

After the success of last year’s series, the Department of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources is excited to convene the Human Wildlife Interactions Seminar Series again in partnership with the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology

A joint seminar series from the Departments of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology and The Human Dimensions of Natural Resources. This series showcases the importance of interdisciplinary research on Human Wildlife Interactions and will spark opportunities for greater collaboration across disciplines. It is the intention of this series to engage students and faculty from a variety of areas involved in critical conversations about how to address today’s global conservation challenges.
