Dr Amanda Webber

Amanda is an Anthropologist whose PhD research focused on human-wildlife interactions amongst rural farming communities in northwest Uganda; specifically the actual and perceived risk of crop damage by large vertebrates. Since 2013, she has worked for Bristol Zoological Society and her research interests are human-wildlife coexistence, perceptions of ‘problem’ animals, and the use of social research in wildlife conservation. She currently co-leads the northern Madagascar field project in Sahamalaza-Iles Radama National Park where her work is focussed on lemurs and the Malagasy sacred ibis.
