Conservation efforts on an international scale don’t always have the intended impact of preserving and sustaining wildlife, and often times disproportionately affect marginalized communities. In order to address this planning for biological factors like size, range, and behavior are taken into account. These are all criteria that are within the “biological sphere of conservation,” but examining the socio-political climate of communities that are going to be impacted is also necessary in determining the overall success of a long-term conservation effort and minimizing potential Human Wildlife Conflict (HWC). By exploring four different case studies in India/Bangladesh, Tanzania, and North America, and the differing responses to intersectional impacts on local communities intersectional planning will be advocated for.
