Behavior of feral horses in response to culling and GnRH immunocontraception
Contributor(s):: Ransom, Jason I., Powers, Jenny G., Garbe, Heidi M., Oehler, Michael W., Nett, Terry M., Baker, Dan L.
Wildlife management actions can alter fundamental behaviors of individuals and groups, which may directly impact their life history parameters in unforeseen ways. This is especially true for highly social animals because changes in one individual's behavior can cascade throughout its social...
The effects of gestagen implants on the behaviour of free-ranging female koalas
Contributor(s):: Hynes, Emily F., Handasyde, Kathrine A., Shaw, Geoff, Renfree, Marilyn B.
Hormonal contraception is an increasingly important management tool for control of highly abundant populations of wildlife but may have both predictable and unpredictable effects on behaviour, with consequent implications for management and animal welfare. In a study of free-ranging koalas we...
Beaver management in Norway : a model for continental Europe?
out of 5 stars
| Contributor(s):: Howard Parker, Frank Rosell
While Norway has been managing beaver (Castor fiber) for more than 150 years, most central European countries have little experience and none are presently harvesting beaver, despite rapidly growing populations and conflicts. Here we present the Norwegian beaver management model as an example....
Perceptions of Hunting and Hunters by U.S. Respondents

Public acceptance of hunting and hunting practices is an important human dimension of wildlife management in the United States. Researchers surveyed 825 U.S. residents in an online questionnaire about their views of hunting, hunters, and hunting practices. Eighty-seven percent of respondents from...
Human-cat relationship in an oceanic biosphere reserve: the case of La Palma Island, Canary archipelago
| Contributor(s):: Medina, F. M., Nogales, M., Farnworth, M. J., Bonnaud, E.
Removal of feral cats from island environments is a useful mechanism by which their ecological impact on endangered species can be reduced or ended. Nevertheless, because cats are anthropogenic in their origins, social perceptions of management practices play a large role in their implementation....
The Rescue and Rehabilitation of Koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) in Southeast Queensland
| Contributor(s):: Emily Burton, Andrew Tribe
Koala populations in southeast Queensland are under threat from many factors, particularly habitat loss, dog attack, vehicle trauma and disease. Animals not killed from these impacts are often rescued and taken into care for rehabilitation, and eventual release back to the wild if deemed to be...

Can Citizen Science Assist in Determining Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) Presence in a Declining Population?
| Contributor(s):: Emily Flower, Darryl Jones, Lilia Bernede
The acceptance and application of citizen science has risen over the last 10 years, with this rise likely attributed to an increase in public awareness surrounding anthropogenic impacts affecting urban ecosystems. Citizen science projects have the potential to expand upon data collected by...
Wild-But-Not-Too-Wild Animals: Challenging Goldilocks Standards in Rewilding
| Contributor(s):: Erica von Essen, Michael P. Allen
Rewilding is positioned as ‘post’-conservation through its emphasis on unleashing the autonomy of natural processes. In this paper, we argue that the autonomy of nature rhetoric in rewilding is challenged by human interventions. Instead of joining critique toward the ‘managed...
The impact of streetlights on an aquatic invasive species: artificial light at night alters signal crayfish behaviour
| Contributor(s):: Thomas, John Rhidian, James, Joanna, Newman, Rhian Claire, Riley, William D., Griffiths, Siân W., Cable, Jo
Artificial light at night (ALAN) can significantly alter the behaviour, communication and orientation of animals, and will potentially interact with other stressors to affect biodiversity. Invasive, non-native species are one of the largest threats to freshwater biodiversity; however, the impact...
Pet ownership, attitude toward pets, and support for wildlife management strategies
| Contributor(s):: Shuttlewood, C. Z., Greenwell, P. J., Montrose, V. T.
Pet ownership affects engagement with animal-related activities and may be related to support of wildlife management. British participants ( N=220) completed an online survey providing information on pet ownership, attitudes toward pets, and support for wildlife management strategies. Within this...
