In this webinar, which originally aired on January 28, 2021, BIWFC Grant Recipient Dan Salkeld, Research Scientist II at Colorado State University, discusses results of an investigation into the potential of an immunocontraceptive – GonaCon – to humanely and sustainably manage prairie dog populations by reducing breeding success. Three matched pairs of sites were used in this study – one site where adult female prairie dogs were vaccinated with GonaCon, and one site where a sham vaccine was administered – in Fort Collins and Denver, Colorado.
