Call for Abstracts

The theme of Asia for Animals 2017 is Changing Human Behaviour – recognising that the field of human behaviour change is rapidly becoming a key component of effective animal welfare work. Abstract submissions are invited across all animal issues on any species provided they demonstrate elements or approaches that highlight this theme, either in research or practice.

For more guidance and information on the theme of human behaviour change, please see the Theme page on our website.

The output of this huge body of work can be roughly summarized into four pillars: the process of change; the psychology of change; the environment for change; and ownership of change.

  1. In a month many tiger attack case have been increased in nepal. Near of chitwan national park in february, i think more than 6 people are killed from tiger in different different place and i think different different tiger are involved in attack. Day by day accident have been increased so people are agressive with tiger and other wild animal. I think this is not coinsident and some thing are going wrong in Tiger behaviour so we should research in it. Thank you
