Habitat Management for Wildlife

WCON403

Description

Wildlife managers influence wildlife species using three ‘levers’: habitat, populations, or humans. This course addresses the habitat dimension of wildlife management. Students will engage in discussions and activities to create understanding of the basic concept of habitat and its components, how various species identify, select, and interact with their habitat, and how this process influences how managers manipulate the environment to influence wildlife populations. Students will also gain familiarity with common habitat management tools and funding programs.
