In Pursuit of Wild Game Investigating People’s Perceptions of Hunting – Drs Shawn J. Riley and Göran Ericsson

behavioural sciences, earth and environment

Hunting is among the most ancient of human activities, and still plays a major role in obtaining food for many people worldwide. Dr Shawn Riley and Dr Göran Ericsson work to understand the volume and distribution of wild-harvested meat, how this meat moves through society, and the effects of sharing the harvest on people’s perspective toward traditional uses of wildlife such as hunting. They also investigate the factors that influence people’s perception of hunting, and how hunters distribute their yields in different situations.
