Texas Wildlife Association has teamed with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to host a series of webinars covering a wide array of wildlife and land management topics. These free online webinars are held during the lunch hour (noon – 1 p.m., CST) so that anyone interested may tune in during the work day. The webinar series provides sound, science-based wildlife management information delivered by experts to you in the comfort of your own home or office.
The next webinar, “Predator Control”, will be held on Thursday, May 16. This month’s presenter will be Mike Bodenchuck, the State Director for the Texas Cooperative Wildlife Services Program. While predators and prey have coexisted for millennia, predation can have a negative impact in altered ecosystems. On occasion, predation can impact the wildlife we manage to create underperforming populations which do not meet our human objectives. The Predator Control webinar will focus on the relationships between predators and prey, how to detect significant predation impacts and how to manage these impacts. A brief introduction into predator/prey relationships as well as species-specific ways to address predation will be discussed.
