Joana Gomes Pereira

PhD Student

I am conducting a Ph.D. in Biology and Ecology of Global Change (BEGC) by the University of Lisbon starting in 2018 within the Carnivore Conservation Ecology Subgroup of the Conservation in Socio-Ecological Systems (CSES) research group of cE3c. I am conducting the project “Human-wildlife conflicts in NE Mozambique: understanding the social and biological contexts of the conflict and defining mitigation and management strategies”, under the supervision of Luís Miguel Rosalino, from department of Animal Biology at Lisbon University, Seth Wilson from W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation at Montana University (EUA), and Carlos Fonseca from department of Biology at Aveiro University. My Ph.D. project aims are:

  • Evaluate the Human-wildlife conflicts´ scale (e.g. economical, public attitude, spatial and temporal conflict patterns) within the Quirimbas National Park and surrounding areas;
  • Assess which wildlife species are considered by the population inhabiting QNP region the most conflicting wildlife;
  • Perceive the reasons why people consider some species has having a negative effect in their wellbeing;
  • Use the collected data to structure an efficient conservation and management guidelines which can incorporate robust and regional-specific mitigation measures and thus improve the QNP management plan.
