Wildlife management

Mercedes Rois

Wildlife management is the process of keeping certain wildlife populations at desirable levels determined by wildlife managers, and also by research. Thus, wildlife management consists of the science, art, and practise of regulating the relative numbers of various wildlife species, some of which are beneficial to man and the forest, and some of which cause damage.

Four categories of activities constitute wildlife management: 1) habitat management, 2) predactor control, 3) species introduction, and 4) regulation of wildlife consumers. So, wildlife management is not only about protecting, enhancing, and nurturing wildlife populations. Sometimes it is also needed to reduce conflicts with people or with other wildlife species.
