Co-existence between people and wildlife: What does it mean for humans but also for wildlife? With humans increasingly moving into habitats of wildlife and wildlife returning into previously used habitats, landscapes are getting more and more shared and interactions between humans and wildlife are unavoidable. How do we currently deal with this situation and how do we want to deal with it in the future? What management strategies exist beyond the extremes of lethal control or doing nothing and should these be preferred? In this short workshop, we want to invite researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders from 'both sides' to explore this topic together and set (new) research priorities.
