As human populations increase and urbanization expands, human-wildlife conflicts are growing. Concurrently, public attitudes are shifting from traditional “wildlife management” to “coexistence,” particularly where the density of the human population is relatively high.
Lethal methods to resolve human-wildlife conflicts can be ineffective, illegal, costly, harmful to the environment and socially unacceptable. This webinar will present case studies where fertility control has been implemented as an alternative to or complementary to culling. Dr. Massei will discuss opportunities and challenges associated with the use of fertility control to manage wildlife and free-roaming livestock and conclude with a comprehensive list of reasons to invest in this area.
