Jeremy Bruskotter's research is centered on understanding and explaining how people make conservation-related judgments and decisions, and the intersection of such judgments with conservation policy. He is particularly interested in how people make decisions related to the conservation of wildlife, and the origins of resource-related conflicts, especially those that involve wildlife. Much of his recent work is focused on understanding judgments and behaviors concerning large carnivores, including gray wolves.
In a study published last year, Bruskotter found overwhelming support among U.S. residents for the Endangered Species Act, despite the controversy that surrounds the act in government.
