Wildlife management is often described as the manipulation of either one or more populations of specific wildlife, their habitat, or both. This is done to achieve one or more goals. Nature has its checks and balances, wildlife management is truly the science and study behind it.
How do we manage wildlife?
By creating diverse habitats and smooth transitions from prairies, to savannas, to woodlands and wetlands, we can establish an effective and manageable method of maintaining a healthy wildlife community. Proper wildlife managers often need to assess the pros and cons of each action that may need to be taken, and what methods of management are available.
Many factors play into successful wildlife management, but each scenario is different.
