Australia’s policies for combating invasive species have shifted significantly towards relying upon the efforts of private citizens and industry. Community action is needed to effectively deal with human-wildlife conflicts. However, these efforts are rarely informed by the best available science or an empirical approach. This project aims to increase the effectiveness of community-based programs for invasive species management. Researchers are collaborating on a book that uses case studies and applied research to highlight effective community-engagement principles and practices. This information ranges from advanced theoretical knowledge to best practice advice, and it benefits scholars and professionals who specialize in community facilitation and communication. The project team is also developing future collaborative research goals for community-engagement theory and practices, including a plan for student-based projects.
