Abstract
Our aim here is to advocate the pedagogic and conceptual value of starting out simply in modelling, and gradually adding in complexity. Furthermore, interdisciplinary interactions with practitioners are crucial to ensure our work will be relevant and applicable to real-world situations. This combined approach will also help us in communicating effectively our results outside of academia, particularly in the context of shaping conservation policy.
