We conducted this study to determine (1) the occurrence of human-wildlife interaction in the greater Omaha, Nebraska metropolitan area, (2) variations in interactions among urban habitat types, (3) the actions that people take in response to urban wildlife encounters, and (4) information channels that the public in this area uses to gain advice concerning wildlife management. Based on this information we plan to improve assistance criteria, educational materials, and programs relative to urban audiences.
