Training and Support
Humane Wildlife Services offers a wide range of customized consulting services, from human-wildlife conflict resolution workshops for animal care professionals to training for organizations and individuals on how to start a business.
For the Animal Care Professional
Few animal shelters have the resources to manage wildlife calls—but that doesn't mean you don’t receive them. We offer effective training for shelter staff and others interested in raising the bar for wildlife control in their communities.
Human-wildlife conflicts are increasing across the United States and the public continues to call upon the animal care and control community to help resolve them. An effective phone call handling and advising system will:
- Save the lives of wild animals.
- Educate the public
- Prevent orphaning.
- Dramatically reduce the burden on animal control officers, police, shelter staff, and shelter resources.
Workshops are interactive learning opportunities and cover participants’ most challenging conflict calls and response scenarios. These workshops also highlight Humane Wildlife Services’ innovative approach to hands-on solving of wildlife conflicts.
We also offer specialized workshops in effective methods for resolving conflicts with various wildlife species.
- Coyote Hazing Training Workshops cover how to reduce coyote attractants in neighborhoods, protect pets, minimize threats to human safety, and change problematic coyote behavior through hazing.
- Canada Goose Egg Addling Workshops provides instruction in egg addling (a humane method of population control), as well as methods for moving geese away from areas where they aren’t wanted.
