As human populations increase and urbanization expands, conflicts between humans and wildlife are escalating. Traditional methods to resolve such conflicts focus primarily on lethal management including culling with firearms, trapping and toxicants. In response to human health and safety, animal welfare and environmental concerns associated with lethal wildlife management practices, scientists from around the world have been developing and testing field applications of an array of contraception and sterilization methods for free-roaming wildlife populations.

Significant progress has been made, but some challenges remain that must be surmounted to supply the increasing demand from the public and wildlife managers for effective, nonlethal wildlife management tools.

Join us for this free webinar, hosted by The Botstiber Institute for Wildlife Fertility Control, that will provide an overview of major advances that have been made in the field of wildlife fertility control over the last 10 years. We will explore the challenges that remain and ongoing efforts by researchers, wildlife managers, policy-makers and communities. Click below to register online.
