Wildlife

Summary Since the Endangered Species Act (1973), wildlife issues have become a growing threat to agriculture across the Unite States and California. There is a need for unbiased research to lend its hand in identifying needs and solutions around these issues. UC ANR has many strong wildlife scientists scattered across its' numerous disciplines, but needs a way to organize these persons into a unified voice. To connect a diverse set of UCCE employees with training, interest, and expertise in wildlife research/related issues and have a formal way to ensure that the wildlife aspect of our environment has a voice within UC extension. UC ANR's strategic vision strives to be all-encompassing, including "healthy environments". Wildlife are an intrinsic part of the environment.
