Behavior change for wildlife conservation - new published article

Hello everyone,

I'm delighted to share my fresh from the oven article published in Conservation Science and Practice. In this open-access paper, we discuss the effectiveness of two behavior-based strategies to avoid dog visits in Atlantic Forest remnants in southeastern Brazil.

I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Isabel, congrats on this paper and thank you for sharing it with our community!

I had two questions after reading the abstract:

1) What did the commitment nudge entail? 2) what would be your recommendation to conservation practitioners moving forward to reduce the severe dog impacts on wildlife?

Thanks again!

Hi @Isabel Tostes Ribeiro thanks for sharing this paper, it's great to see more behaviour change material on WildHub! I noted with interest your conclusions that there was no real difference between merely providing information vs information + behavioural nudge. I have long worked with the application of social marketing as a tool for conservation behaviour change and seen that effecting lasting change is a lot harder than we all think! I'd love to have a chat about all this if ever you are interested. Meanwhile perhaps you can check out the area of my website dedicated to training on social marketing:
