Abstract: Three anniversaries to be celebrated in 2015 – 15 years since the first wolves’ return to German, 10 years of NABU’s “Welcome Wolf!” campaign and 5 years of training NABU “wolf ambassadors” provide the backdrop for an international conference on wolf-related topics. The conference will be hosted in the city of Wolfsburg (Lower-Saxony) from September 24-26, 2015. The focus will be on the potential conflicts arising from human beings and wolves sharing overlapping territories in a densely populated country. The conference will follow two major themes that provide the basis for NABU’s work in this field: First, the human dimensions of wildlife management – dealing with attitudes, emotions and fear as the basis for the acceptance of (carnivorous) wildlife. Second, the exchange of management practices that make the daily life with wolves easier – especially for other land users – and reduce the potential for conflict. In order to accommodate theses topics, the conference will be organized in two separate, full-day modules. In addition, a full-day field trip into the Northern German wolf territories. We are looking forward to welcoming participants from academia, practitioners and the interested public to discuss strategies and potential implications for wolf management in Germany.
