Human dimensions

Human dimensionsOur ecologists, human geographers and psychologists collaborate to understand the attitudes, beliefs and behaviours of people in ways that could improve the implementation and adoption of environmental and conservation policy.

From understanding climate change beliefs to the behaviour of cat owners, from citizen-science initiatives to count kererū or determine the distributions of pest mammals in Wellington City, the Centre has embarked on breaking down the barriers between the social and ecological sciences to advance the development and implementation of effective environmental policy.
