About This Project

Spotted hyenas are successful carnivores that show the ability to survive in human-dominated areas. However, they can be implicated in human-wildlife conflict via livestock depredation. We will use DNA metabarcoding to assess how hyenas in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area respond to a major increase in livestock abundance. The findings will help promote balanced conservation outcomes for both people and wildlife and improve our understanding of hyena behavioral flexibility.
