Megan M. Draheim

Lecturer in Conservation Biology and Human Dimensions of Wildlife, Virginia Tech

My work focuses on three major (and overlapping) themes: human-wildlife interactions (including human-wildlife conflict), urban biodiversity conservation, and public engagement around conservation science and policy. I have worked with everything from urban coyotes outside of Denver to dolphins in Bayahibe, Dominican Republic. I take an interdisciplinary approach to my projects, combining the ecology of the species or ecosystem in question with the human needs and motivations that are driving the issue.
