Understanding why and how wild animals thrive in urbanized areas is important to resolving conflicts between humans and wildlife. The information provided will help you improve your agency’s response to conflicts, help ensure humane and effective outcomes and prevent orphaning by addressing the root cause of the problem.
Through video examples of wildlife behavior, you will learn how wild animals have adapted to live in urban areas and how they utilize human-provided structures and food sources. You will be equipped to better understand basic urban wildlife ecology including: wildlife home ranges, population density and natural den and nesting sites vs “human-built” sites. This webinar will also cover common urban wildlife problems and how to prevent them while presenting effective and humane approaches to wildlife conflicts.
