Wildlife damage management is an activity that seeks to balance the needs of human activity with the needs of wildlife to the mutual enhancement of both.

Sometimes the solution to an animal-human conflict requires the human to change his or her behavior. Other times, the solution is to change the animal's behavior. Various tools and strategies are used to reduce human-animal conflict, such as behavior modification, repellents, exclusion, habitat modification, relocation, lethal control etc.

As can be seen from this site, wildlife damage management is truly a diverse and complex field. We trust this site will help you discover the best way to manage your wildlife-human conflict for the betterment of both.
