Abstract:
The National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC) is to apply scientific expertise to resolve human-wildlife conflicts while maintaining the quality of the environment shared with wildlife. As the research arm of the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service's (APHIS) Wildlife Services (WS) program, NWRC develops methods and information to address human-wildlife conflicts related to: (1) agriculture (crops, livestock, aquaculture, and timber); (2) human health and safely (wildlife disease, aviation); (3) property damage; (4) invasive species, and (5) threatened and endangered species. NWRC's research programs and priorities are based on nationwide research needs assessments, Congressional directives, WS program needs, and stakeholder input. NWRC research is organized under three research programs that reflect APHIS' commitment to "protecting agricultural and natural resources from agricultural animal and plant health threats, zoonotic diseases, invasive species, and wildlife conflicts and diseases".
