This webinar will open with a brief introduction, followed by the premier presentation of the film. A Question & Answer session will take place after the film.

This film was created with the intention of educating the public and creating connections between wildlife managers, researchers and advocates. It also tells the story of ongoing research and projects in the United States related to wildlife fertility control. The goal is to inform someone who may not know much at all about wildlife fertility control (or perhaps has misconceptions) by presenting a full informative overview of the field.
Between 2018-2019, a small BIWFC crew traveled to Assateague Island, Maryland, Estes Park and Fort Collins in Colorado, The Pryor Mountains and the Science & Conservation Center in Montana, Flagstaff, Oatman and the Black Mountain Herd Management Area in Arizona, and Staten Island, New York. Along the way they also conducted many interviews arranged at various conferences.
During this journey, the staff was met with incredible generosity of time and knowledge from all those interviewed. There were many people interviewed who do not appear in the film and plenty of interview footage that could not be included. Whenever possible, BIWFC continues to weave the unused footage into an ever-growing popular short film “vignette” series posted on the website.
The Institute is proud of the results of “An Overview of Wildlife Fertility Control” and hope you enjoy viewing it.
