Conserving & Caring for Wild Animals

Did you know that more than 1 in 3 species are threatened with extinction? 

 

Our lab has several projects are underway that look at how to promote wildlife conservation efforts.   For example, one project simulates poaching behavior and looks at which psychological constructs attenuate or enhance propensities towards poaching. Another project examines the influence of wildlife viewing and conservation education on a number of psychological and physiological outcomes.
