1/6 #SSWGTC20
⬆️ benefits from wildlife = improved views & actions toward wildlife, right?

Common assumption for #CommunityBasedConservation, but not many studies that assess these relationships

We 👀 at these links using the case of #Endangered reticulated 🦒 in #Kenya 🇰🇪
2/6 There are a # of benefits/costs, tangible/intangible, connected to wildlife conservation

In any community, there’s a diversity of ability/access/motivations to participate in conservation

We 👀 at perceptions of benefits, attitudes toward #giraffe, past 🦒 meat consumption
3/6 We asked:

🦒 Y/N for different types of benefits – two types ($ from tourism & job in cons/tourism) coded as cons benefits
🦒 Attitude toward giraffe on 5p scale
🦒 Most recent time of giraffe meat/part use – re-coded into never/1+ year/within last year
4/6 At both sites, attitudes more ⬆️ positive from those with perceived cons benefits

Different types of benefits can influence attitude toward 🦒 at varying levels of strength and by direction 📈/📉
5/6 Limited results to suggest connection b/w perceived cons benefits & 🦒 meat/part consumption

Those w/ cons benefits just as likely to have consumed 🦒 meat (illegal in 🇰🇪)

This makes sense, as human behavior is complex, including wild meat consumption (see @juliavanvel)
6/6 If shifting attitudes is intended outcome, ⬆️ specificity of benefit types may be more effective (❓of which ben. & process of distribution)

More often, a need to change behaviors tied to wildlife threats. No evidence in our study of link between 🦒 related benefits & beh.
