What is a Wildlife Specialist?
A wildlife specialist assists landowners with wildlife conflicts. They can assist the landowner through a variety of ways:
- Provide technical assistance to the landowner either over the phone or with on-site damage inspections.
- Provide landowners with the tools necessary to solve the problem.
Wildlife Specialists also assists the Division of Wildlife by investigating crop damage complaints and providing accurate information concerning type and extent of damage. After the assessment, they work with landowners to develop a program to direct hunters to landowners with substantial crop damage.
