The bulk of science shows that co-existence is the most practical, sustainable and long-term method of managing ecosystems. This is not a one-off study, either. Various scientists with a variety of funding from around the world are coming to the same conclusions. We need to live with wildlife – predators, mesopredators, ungulates, scavengers – if we want our environment to thrive.

This study illustrates that the social structure of predators is disrupted and has extreme consequences when lethal actions are taken.
This page highlights the downfall of expirdation and ultimate biodiversity success upon the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park.
An outline of the measurable successes of the co-existing with coyotes program started by the Stanley Park Ecology Society in the Metro Vancouver area.
Urban coyotes don’t prey on pets or people – and this analysis proves it.
Results of this study show that non-lethal methods of humane-wildlife conflict mitigation can reduce livestock depredation and can be economically beneficial in comparison to lethal alternatives.
This paper examines the importance of human awareness to prevent declines in predator populations around the world.
This study, which examined 25 years of data, shows that the killing of wolves actually increased depredation on livestock overtime.
The use of non-lethal strategies is more effective at stopping depredation by wolves on ranging livestock, as is shown in this study that includes a control group.
This work contributes to the body of evidence that shows coyote populations increase during persecution.
