  • Resolving the Public's Wildlife Problems in Minutes

    In this interactive presentation geared to animal control officers, shelter staff, dispatchers and wildlife rehabilitators, you’ll learn how to diagnose wildlife dilemmas, interpret wildlife behavior, give effective advice for reuniting “orphans” with their parents and resolve common wildlife problems.

  • Coyote Conflict Resolution

    This workshop, suitable for animal control professionals, police officers, community leaders and the public, will discuss how to reduce coyote attractants in neighborhoods, protect pets from coyote attacks and minimize threats to human safety. Participants will be trained in hazing techniques and will learn tools and tips for successfully changing problematic coyote behaviors.

  • Canada Goose Egg Addling

    In this workshop for parks and public works officials, golf course managers, community leaders and homeowners associations, participants will learn a comprehensive approach for solving conflicts with geese. Part of the process is egg addling, which keeps eggs from hatching. Learn addling techniques (and the registration and data-keeping required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service).

  • Resolving Community Deer Issues

    Designed for community leaders and deer task forces, this presentation describes innovative methods for reducing deer populations and resolving conflicts and takes a science-based look at Lyme disease, biodiversity loss, car accidents and other problems commonly attributed to deer.

  • Solving Beaver Problems

    The return of beavers to their former range has been accompanied by flooding and tree-felling complaints. This workshop, aimed at community leaders, public works departments, wetlands committees and transportation agencies, demonstrates effective tree protectors and shows how simple pipe-based devices can control water levels while allowing beavers to remain in their habitat.

  • Organizing Your Wildlife Rehabilitation Protocols to Make Reunion Your Priority

    Baby wild animals who appear to be orphaned are often just displaced and need to be reunited or renested with their parent(s). This training, of particular relevance to wildlife rehabilitators, covers assessment techniques and species-specific reunion and monitoring protocols.
