Description We did a comprehensive search for publications potentially containing evidence on the effectiveness of animal conditioning interventions in reducing Human-wildlife conflicts. The next steps are to screen the studies for relevance and extract the relevant data, with the goal of making this evidence easily available for conservation practitioners and to conduct analyses on potentially key mediating factors of effectiveness in particular taxa.
