Urban Wildlife Management
Effects of urbanization on wildlife populations - In general, as we urbanize an area, we change the character and functionality of the land, air, and water. These changes greatly impact local habitats. As these habitats are impacted, a corresponding shift in wildlife populations occurs.
Nuisance wildlife issues - As we urbanize the land, radical changes occur to sources of food, water, and shelter for wildlife. Some animals respond very well to the changes urbanization brings. In some cases, these animals may become a nuisance.
