The Wildlife Damage Management Working Group of the Wildlife Society works to promote better understanding of the challenges of managing human-wildlife conflicts and to provide a forum for professionals to advance their skills and knowledge of wildlife damage management practices. The Working Group aims to facilitate information transfer of the newest technologies and issues in wildlife damage management, and to serve as a professional conduit for communications and knowledge. For over 25 years, the main outlet of disseminating the latest science in wildlife damage has been our biennial national conference and thus, we welcome you to the 19th installment of our efforts!
In these unprecedented times, the Board Members and Conference Committee of the Wildlife Damage Management Working Group would not be deterred by inability to gather in person and decided unanimously to hold the conference on a virtual platform. We feel you will still experience the same level of networking, interaction, and information exchange as our traditional conferences- with a unique platform of virtual technology! We chose the theme of "Forward" as not only is it the state motto of our hosts from Wisconsin, but in one word it also describes our tenacity and adaptability in carrying on despite the obstacles of our present time. Join us as we learn from speakers in a new yet exciting environment, tour notable Wisconsin wildlife management areas, and interact with our colleagues from the comfort of our homes and offices!
