Time: 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Expanding populations and habitat loss can place people and wildlife in direct competition for resources, often leading to negative outcomes for both. Wildlife conflict issues often center around predators like tigers and wolves or large, charismatic species such as elephants, but even unassuming animals, including prairie dogs, can be perceived as problematic. Strategies that target the needs of both humans and animals are needed to manage conflicts and provide for an environment in which we can better co-exist with wildlife. Join our panel of experts as they discuss their experiences researching and managing human-wildlife conflict here in the Upper Midwest and internationally.
