Abstract

he National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC) functions as the research arm of the Wildlife Services (WS) program, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Located on the Foothills campus of Colorado State University, WS-NWRC helps WS manage wildlife conflicts by providing scientific information on damage or threats to human health and safety, and by developing new tools and management techniques. WS-NWRC research activities emphasize economically, environmentally and socially acceptable methods that reduce or stop wildlife damage effectively without risk to humans, wildlife or the natural environment.
