[Got Bats? Report Your Colony Today]

The Wildlife Conservation and Management Program at Rutgers University is a part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, a unit of the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station. Our main objective is to reduce the conflict between wildlife and humans in the most densely populated and highly developed state in the United States. Our work focuses not only on reducing wildlife damage caused by overpopulated animals, such as deer and Canada geese, but we also strive to increase wildlife habitat quality and the persistence of species of special conservation concern (bats, shorebirds, etc.). Wildlife provide us with valuable ecological services (pollination, insect management, seed dispersal, etc.), and we must continue to promote strategies that embrace the coexistence of humans and wild animals.
