Jorge Tobajas has a degree in Forest Engineering from the Universidad de Lleida and a PhD degree in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences from the Universidad de Castilla-la Mancha (UCLM). In addition, in 2012 he completed the Master's Degree in Basic and Applied Research in Game Resources (MUIBARC) at the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC - CSIC, UCLM, JCCM).
His scientific career is focused on the conservation and management of large and medium-sized carnivores and scavengers, with special emphasis on predator-prey relationships, camera trap modelling, predation control, human-wildlife interactions and the reduction of conflicts between humans and wildlife.
His research is mainly focused on the development of Conditioned Food Aversion (CFA) as non-lethal tool to reduce predation on domestic livestock by large carnivores (red fox and wolf), developing the methodologies necessary for its implementation.
His current scientific interest is focused on the study of scavengers ecology and the interactions derived from the handling of carrion remains from hunting activities and the role that this trophic resource plays in facultative and strict scavenger species such as the cinereous vulture.
