    Wildlife Management - Careers in Action


    In this video we talk to 3 wildlife management professionals: David Shepherdson and Michelle Schireman of the Oregon Zoo, and Nicole Stevens of the Washington State Fish and Wildlife Services as they release captive reared western pond turtles into the Columbia River Gorge.

    A career in Wildlife Management can be tough to get into but can be very rewarding. Fish and Wildlife, zoos and aquariums, and non-profit organizations are the key organizations that hire Wildlife management professionals.

    Find Your Path: Wildlife Biologist


    Jenniffer Bakke shows what it's like to work as a wildlife biologist with a forest management company in Independence, Ore. She spends a lot of time in the woods and keeps track of wildlife on the company's land. She helps make sure a timber harvest or other work is done in a way that minimizes harm to wildlife habitat.

    (Part of the Find Your Path series created by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute.)

  • Land Conservation and Wildlife Management - The Management Advantage


    Conservation and management go hand in hand. Without the conservation of natural resources and habitats, we might not have sustainable wildlife populations to manage today. Conservation practices and projects have been around for many years and thanks to them, we are able to enjoy the opportunity to harvest multiple deer a year or 6 ducks a day during waterfowl season. This week on The Management Advantage, we take a look at how conservation plays a role in wildlife management and a way companies can protect the environment while still completing the job at hand.

    New South Access and Environmental Solutions is a great example of current day conservation. They offer access solutions and construction matting for environmentally sensitive areas. Companies in new construction or infrastructure repair or improvement often need the ability to access wetland areas that are not only home to many types of wildlife, but also impossible to travel through without some sort of access solution. New South's use of the Emtek Air Bridge Access System provides the access needed to the wettest areas, but still protects it. The matting spreads the weight of heavy equipment over a large area limiting the footprint left after the project is completed. The design distributes weight horizontally and vertically. Even with heavy equipment utilizing the mats, the pounds per square inch on the environment is less than that of a human.

    New South Access and Environmental Solutions provides matting for all types of environments. In one of their latest projects in Minnesota, they supplied a local power company with three different tiers of matting solutions dependent upon the conditions of the marsh. This variety of access solutions saves their clients money, but doesn't sacrifice the preservation of the environment allowing them to return to their natural beauty and utilization by wildlife.

  • African Wildlife experience for Reaseheath Animal Management undergraduates


    In late February of this year, 30 students undertaking undergraduate study in HE took part in a two week Experiential Field Course.

    Students studying FdSc Zoo Management and FdSc Animal Behaviour and Welfare and BSc Wildlife Conservation and Ecology and BSc Animal Behaviour and Welfare travelled to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve in Botswana to enhance their field techniques and study pertinent conservation issues within Africa.

    Working closely with our partner organisations in Botswana, students conducted an inventory of species observed during their stay; in total cataloguing close to 300 species of Mammals, Birds, Reptiles and Amphibians. The video footage presented here has been provided by the students and documents their experience.

  • Wildlife Ecology: Greg Yarrow


    My name is Greg Yarrow and I am a professor of wildlife ecology at Clemson University. Wildlife in general are a bio-indicator of environmental health; they indicate the quality of our own environment.
    We have a variety of projects ongoing right now that address conservation issues related to wildlife, as well as conflicts with wildlife. We have one project in Assam, India that looks at human-elephant conflict and we're trying to come up with a method where the two can coexist.
    Closer to home, we have a project around Cape Romain where mink populations are thought to pose a threat to endangered shore birds. We're looking at impacts that these mink might have and trying to balance the conservation issues, while at the same time we want to provide suitable habitat for mink.
    We also have a project in Winyah Bay that is investigating the impact of coyotes on native wildlife. We've found that coyotes are fairly new to South Carolina and we have coyotes in every county of the state. Now they are on the barrier islands and they are threatening endangered species.
    I also have several students working on the Clemson Forest and looking at ways that landowners can integrate wildlife conservation considerations into managed forests.
    There is a tremendous amount of work being done in the area of wildlife management and ecology. It is very fulfilling to see students become engaged and leave Clemson and make a difference in conservation.

    100 years of nature conservation


    The Wildlife Trusts: 100 years of nature conservation is a documentary film telling the story of The Wildlife Trusts. From its inception as the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves in 1912 under the leadership of Charles Rothschild, to the birth of the local conservation movement after WWII, through its dramatic growth in the 1960s to the present day.

    The film visits locations such as Skomer, Loch of the Lowes, Brockholes, Flamborough Head, Woodwalton Fen and Ballynahone Bog. It also uses archive footage from Trusts, the BBC and other sources. Interviewees include Sir David Attenborough, Prof Aubrey Manning, Simon King, Ted Smith, Stephanie Hilborne, Hilary Benn MP and trustees, staff and volunteers from around the Trusts. The film is narrated by the actor Sam West, directed by Sarah Pitt and produced by Environment Films.

    Many Wildlife Trusts are showing the full hour-long film at local 'our history' screenings.

  • ETHIOPIA: Gambellas hidden treasures


    Gambella - Ethiopia's wet western most region - shelters an important wildlife population. Livelihood and landscape are linked, with water as major resource. The Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority is responsible for the protection and management of the park. Gambella's National Park is undergoing a major review. The region shares an important border with the republic of South-Sudan and animals should easily move from one country to the other. Gambella's National Park also has potential for development of ecotourism.
    This video is about the protection and preservation of Gambella's National Park. Under new management and new visions Gambella National Park is being transformed into a properly managed protected area.

    Wildlife Management Areas in Tanzania, Promoting Community Based Conservation and Livelihoods


    Produced by Real2Reel Film Productions,

    Tanzania is uniquely rich in wildlife and natural resources, with over 28% of the country directly protected through national parks, game reserves, forest reserves and other conservation areas. However protected areas are not sufficient to alone accommodate wildlife migration patterns, which often run outside these zones causing conflicts with the populations settled there.

    In 1998, USAID joined hands with the Government of Tanzania, other donors and conservation NGOs, to undertake a bold new approach in community based conservation. Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs), which are community owned and managed conservation areas, have emerged as the best hope for mitigating human-wildlife conflict outside protected areas.

    This documentary gives a brief overview of the process for establishing a WMA, the challenges, as well as prospects in making WMAs economically viable as wildlife conservation enterprises.
