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.





The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.





The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.



** This webinar has been certified by the National Animal Care and Control Association and may be eligible for Continuing Education Units. Please consult your local certification processes for additional details. Current NACA Members who attend will be able to download a jointly issued attendance certificate that includes the National Animal Care & Control Association logo.
