Large carnivores are difficult to monitor in the field: they are elusive and live at low densities over wide areas. With their recent recovery in Europe, large carnivores are having increasing interactions with human activities. In this talk, I will illustrate how our team ( and collaborators contribute to the management of large carnivores in Europe. We will showcase inference about large carnivores’ abundance and distribution by applying and developing statistical methods that make optimal use of available and noisy data. We will also talk about how model outcomes can be used in making scenarios and decisions about large carnivores’ management.
