Behavioural Responses to a Changing World

This chapter describes the disturbance of wildlife done by ecotourists and enumerates their negative effects on the population viability of some species. It reviews recent wildlife disturbance research studies to determine the influence of the new field of conservation behaviour. It addresses the adequacy of the methodological approaches taken from past studies to assess the impact of anthropogenic disturbance on wild animals, and determines if the quality of the research in these published studies is adequate for wildlife management and conservation policy-making. The chapter also aims to motivate animal behaviourists in offering their services to conservation efforts, and highlights the importance of behavioural science in the protection of natural areas and species.

Keywords:   wildlife disturbance, ecotourists, population viability, conservation behaviour, anthropogenic disturbance, wildlife management, conservation
